Get Jaw Pain Relief with an Occlusal Adjustment
If you have jaw pain and other TMJ symptoms because of a misaligned jaw, Dr. Keith Schmidt or Dr. Jay Shires may need to perform a bite alignment, or occlusal adjustment, as part of your treatment plan. A misaligned bite can put more pressure on certain teeth every time you bite down. If you have a habit of grinding your teeth, you may be at risk for wearing down your teeth and causing irreversible damage.
Whether you are diagnosed with TMJ or are experiencing discomfort and pain because of a misaligned bite, our doctors can perform an occlusal adjustment to remedy the situation and improve your oral health.
Our doctors have extensive experience treating TMJ and providing relief from jaw pain. If you are experiencing symptoms of TMJ or have a teeth grinding habit, come in for an oral evaluation. Schedule your appointment with Dr. Schmidt or Dr. Shires in Towson, MD today!
