Quality Slidell TMJ Symptoms Treatment

If you are constantly bothered by a sore jaw, you may be suffering from TMJ disorder. TMJ symptoms can include a clicking jaw, a popping sound when you chew or speak, and a sore jaw when you first wake. Slidell TMJ symptoms dentist Dugas, D.D.S., can help you get started on a short-term and long-term plan to alleviate much of the pain and discomfort you're experiencing.

But what causes TMJ disorder? Some contributing factors may include injuries to the jaw area, certain forms of arthritis, low-level infections and certain dental procedures. Untreated dental problems (crooked teeth, gum disease) can also lead to TMJ symptoms. At Paul E Dugas DDS we're committed to listening to you and working with you to develop a plan to treat your jaw discomfort.

Dr. Dugas will develop a treatment plan that's right for you, which may include restoration of certain teeth that may be contributing to the problem, attention to proper gum maintenance, pain relief, and a concerted effort to identify the underlying causes of your TMJ symptoms. Many of our Slidell patients have discovered that relief can be obtained from simple changes in their eating and sleeping habits, although more advanced cases may require surgery.
