Relieve Pain

The first way TMJ treatment in Aberdeen will change your life is by relieving pain. Whether you’ve suffered from jaw pain or frequent headaches only recently or for more years than you can remember, finally feeling relief from that pain will be one of the biggest transformations in your life. Think of all the times you skipped out on plans because of jaw pain or migraine and how this won’t be the case anymore. Living a pain-free life is transformational.

Improve Bite and/or Smile

One of the reasons some patients suffer from TMJ is because they have an imbalanced bite. To address the situation, we usually recommend orthodontics or some type of restorative dentistry procedure to restore the missing tooth structure needed to balance the bite. As a result, patients can expect a better smile and improved bite! Not only will you live with less pain but your smile will look better than ever.

Improve Mood

Feeling in pain all the time can really put a damper on your mood. Once you live life nearly pain-free, you will feel much better mentally. Everyone around you will likely notice your improved mood. You will find new motivation to perform better at work and complete more tasks in your life now that pain isn’t interfering.

Save Teeth from Additional Wear

Once you get TMJ treatment, you no longer have to worry about wearing down your teeth any further. One of the side effects of grinding or clenching teeth is tooth wear. When too much tooth wear occurs, patients need dental crowns to rebuild the missing tooth structure. Once you receive TMJ treatment and use it consistently, you won’t have to worry about wearing down your teeth anymore.
