TMJ Disorder Treatment in Lexington, SC
Do you have frequent headaches or wake up with sore jaw muscles?
Does your mouth ever get “locked” open?
Do you clench or grind your teeth?
If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, you may benefit from a TMJ analysis at our Lexington, SC dental office. Dr. Rodgers is trained to evaluate your jaw joint, muscles, and teeth for signs of instability and will review the best way to treat your specific case.
Our state-of-the-art digital cone beam CT machine will also be used to scan your temporomandibular joint to reveal any signs of bone or disk degradation. Many times TMJ disorder can be alleviated by limited use of muscle relaxers, a bite adjustment, and wearing an occlusal guard (“night guard.”) If you have a more complex problem of the jaw joint that appears to need surgery, our doctors will put your CT scan on a disk to send to the specialist and refer you to the oral surgeon for a consult.
Call 803-359-3215 today to schedule a consult with Dr. Eddie Rodgers. There is no need to go on living with pain in your jaw joint or jaw muscles. We are here to help!
