Treating Jaw Pain With Disclusion Time Reduction Therapy

That chronic, seemingly constant pain in your jaw can cut into your quality of life, and make biting, chewing, and speaking unpleasant for you. These aches and pains can be particularly frustrating because you can be unsure of what you did to cause them. You might not realize just how much of an effect your bite function can have on your oral health, and your quality of life. Disclusion Time Reduction Therapy can help you improve your bite function, and stop creating problems that can result in TMJ dysfunction. In addition to helping reduce difficulties with biting and chewing, this can be done to put a stop to recurring headaches.

Is TMJ Dysfunction Causing A Negative Effect On Your Life?

People who experience persistent discomfort in the face, jaw, neck, and head could be experiencing issues with TMJ dysfunction. While a troubled bite can be the reason for your TMJ dysfunction, there are other issues, like arthritis of your jaw joints, that can also create problems. Your dentist can put a stop to your discomfort by relieving tension in your jaw. By studying the way you bite down, and how long it takes for teeth to separate when you open your mouth again, your dentist can find problems that need to be addressed.

Using Advanced Technology To Study Your Bite

Advanced tools are used to analyze your bite function, the activity of your jaw muscles, and the way you apply pressure with different teeth. By analyzing your bite equilibration, your dentist can locate difficulties and improper functions that are creating problems for you. Once this information has been gathered, you can work on improving your dental function, and no longer putting undue pressure on your teeth, and your jaw.

Identifying And Correcting Problems That Threaten Your Oral Health

Improving your bite function can help you reduce or stop the symptoms of TMJ dysfunction. With that said, there may be other steps your dentist recommends to fully address your oral health needs. Your poor bite function may be the result of poor dental alignment. Correcting this issue with the appropriate orthodontic care can have a positive effect on your appearance, and dental function. You can also receive care for problems concerning individual teeth, which may be too sensitive or vulnerable to allow you to properly bite down.
