Patients in the Wichita area seeking a TMJ Dentist "near me"

Patients who have been looking on popular search engines for a dentist "near me" who provides TMJ/TMD treatment are welcome to speak with a Wichita, KS dentist to discuss effective solutions to control the problem and improve one's overall quality of life.

TMJ is the temporomandibular joint. This joint connects the upper and lower jaw and allows patients to open and close their mouth. When patients are suffering from a malfunction of the TMJ, they are experiencing a problem known as TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder). This condition requires treatment in order to reduce problems such as wear and tear on the teeth, pain around the jaw joint, clicking and popping of the jaw, as well as locking in a closed or open position. When these problems are occurring, they are symptoms of a larger problem and should be diagnosed appropriately.

TMD can be handled by a quality dentist with the proper experience to provide the best care possible. It can be dealt with effectively with oral appliance therapy. Oral appliances are mouth guards that are specially made to handle problems such as TMD while protecting the existing teeth and restorations from breaking due to the clenching and grinding of the jaw. They can also reduce problems such as pain and chronic headaches, which are often associated with this condition as well by allowing patients to use these special mouth guards for protection. These mouth guards are custom made using impressions of the natural teeth and are extremely comfortable, ensuring patients wear them and see a significant improvement in their disorder.

The team of East Wichita Dentist are excited to offer TMJ therapies for patients who are ready to find a source of relief. Call our Wichita, KS area practice today to book an appointment and consult with us regarding the methods of treatment available.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
