Recognize The Symptoms Of TMJ Disorder
Only a skilled, experienced dentist like Dr. Bell can properly diagnose issues with your jaw alignment. She may spot one of the signs, teeth grinding, during one of your routine dental exams and recommend restorative dentistry if necessary. But you might recognize some of the other symptoms even before then. Symptoms of TMJ dysfunction include:
Popping noises in your jaw
It would be hard living with any of these symptoms on their own, but even more miserable if you’re suffering from several of them all the time. Fortunately, we can help!

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment/Teeth Grinding
How long does TMJ treatment last?
Our TMJ solutions are customized to suit your individual situation, so the duration of treatment is going to vary from patient to patient. Generally, you can expect to feel relief in a couple of weeks once your jaw has had a chance to rest from the stress and pressure of clenching, grinding, and other issues caused by TMJ misalignment.
What are TMJ symptoms?
Along with a sore jaw, you might experience common symptoms like frequent headaches or migraines, facial swelling, muscle tension in your neck and shoulders, earaches, clicking noises in your jaw when you chew, and lockjaw. Damaged or worn tooth enamel caused by teeth grinding are other signs of TMJ disorders. These are often spotted during routine dental exams.
Where should I go for TMJ treatment?
Visit our experienced Oologah dentist, Dr. Bell, for a thorough evaluation. She can properly diagnose TMJ problems and provide effective treatment to mitigate your painful symptoms. You could benefit from a custom mouthguard that fits comfortably over your teeth. As you sleep, the guard prevents teeth grinding and jaw clenching so you can heal and live pain-free.
