Reclaim Comfort & Freedom from Pain with TMJ Therapy by LVI Dentist Dr. Arian
As a LVI dentist in Las Vegas, Dr. Arian has studied the relationship between the teeth, gums, jaws, muscles, and nerves of the oral system, an area of study known as neuromuscular dentistry. This knowledge helps him correct dental problems for the long term. For instance, a misaligned jaw joint can cause teeth grinding (bruxism), which can in turn cause damage to teeth, like chips, cracks, and wear. Furthermore, patients who experience these symptoms may suffer from TMJ dysfunction:
- Migraine Headaches
- Chronic Earaches
- Tingling Extremities
- Popping Jaw Joints
- Inability to Open and Close Mouth
- Bruxism or Tooth Wear
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Facial Pain
- Back Pain
Our dentist at Las Vegas Smile Center can determine if your migraine headaches or other symptoms are caused by disharmony in your oral system. He will prescribe non-surgical TMJ therapy if indicated. This could include physical therapy, oral splints, orthodontics, or equilibration through restorative dental work. Once your bite is restored, your TMJ joints will rest in the correct position. In most cases, symptoms subside and patients find true relief from nagging pain.
With a properly aligned bite as a foundation, Dr. Arian of Las Vegas can begin your restorative work with full confidence that it will last. If you suffer with TMJ symptoms or bruxism, call our dental office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Arian at the Las Vegas Smile Center.
