TMJ Disorder

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders are usually noticed when a person experiences pain and tenderness in their jawbone and in the muscles that are used to control jaw movement. These conditions can be the result of many factors, including genetics, arthritis, oral injury, trauma and bruxism. Luckily, most cases of TMJ disorders are temporary, and the problem can often be cured with non-surgical treatment methods.

The experts at Aqua Dental Loft are prepared to provide specialized examinations for patients who we believe may be suffering from a TMJ disorder. These examinations are generally quick and easy, and they typically involve the following steps:

  • Listening to the jawbone and feeling it as it is moved
  • Measuring the jaw’s range of motion
  • Having the patient identify any areas of pain or discomfort near the jaw

While the pain associated with a TMJ disorder may simply disappear on its own, more severe cases may require some sort of medical intervention. If we do determine that a TMJ disorder is indeed the cause of your jaw pain, we may recommend one or more of the following:

  • Pain Medication
  • Muscle Relaxants
  • Physical Therapy
  • Mouth Guards
  • Injection Therapy
  • Surgery

If you believe that you might be suffering from a TMJ disorder, please call us at (561) 264-2264 to schedule an appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr Casey is so AMAZING! So professional he explained everything and listened to my concerns, my fillings were painless, I did not feel a thing and they are actually pretty, you would never know they are there. I also just had my teeth cleaned today; my teeth have never been so clean. I highly recommend the office, staff is so friendly and courteous I will never go anywhere else. 😁"

"Doctor Jamily Pedro and Dr. Casey Pedro are AMAZING dentists. They are kind, caring, informative, and very knowledgeable. Never in my life have I had a dentist that actually takes the time to properly explain things to me, or teach me about preventative care, etc. They are also wonderful with my children and put them at ease when they are nervous. The office is state of the art and very cleanly. There's always music playing in the background to help relax you. I highly recommend this dental practice."
