The temporomandibular joint.

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects the skull and jaw and allows the jaws to open and close with ease.

TMJ Disorder Diagnosis

During your visit to our Cincinnati dental practice, Dr. Gase will closely examine your teeth and jaws. Typically, Dr. Gase will ask you to open your jaw as wide as you can to observe the function of your TMJ. Digital x-rays may be taken at this time. Common symptoms he will be looking for include:

  • A popping or clicking noise when the mouth is opened widely
  • Trouble opening the mouth
  • Jaw pain
  • Headaches
  • Discomfort when chewing
  • Toothaches
  • Earaches

Due to the many potential causes of TMJ disorder symptoms, Dr. Gase will need to determine the exact cause of your discomfort. Once the root cause has been found, he will prescribe a suitable treatment plan.

TMJ Disorder Treatment Options

There are multiple treatment options for TMJ disorder. If your jaw pain is caused by dental problems or misaligned teeth, Dr. Gase may recommend Invisalign® aligner trays or restorative treatments like dental crowns.

If your jaws are out of alignment or if bruxism is the underlying cause of your TMJ disorder, Dr. Gase may recommend an oral appliance. The custom-made splint reduces stress on the jaw joints by properly realigning your bite. The acrylic resin device comfortably fits over the upper and lower teeth and prevents the teeth from coming into contact.

Dr. Warren Gase has practiced dentistry for 30 years and can diagnose and treat your symptoms at his Cincinnati, OH, dental practice.

During your first visit, Dr. Gase will take an impression of your teeth that will be used to manufacture your oral appliance. After a few weeks, your bite guard will arrive and he will ensure that it is the correct fit. Dr. Gase will explain how often the appliance needs to be worn. Patients should begin finding relief from TMJ disorder in the days and weeks following the start of this treatment.

The majority of patients find relief through non-surgical means. If you do require corrective jaw surgery, Dr. Gase will ensure that you are referred to a trusted surgeon.
