Prosper & Melissa TMJ Therapy
High Quality Orthodontic Care
With or without braces, you may have found yourself with a discomforting pain in your head and jaw. At Bietsch Orthodontics, we want to help you find the source of this pain. TMJ pain or TMD, is a painful disorder of the jaw joint (temporomandibular joint). This is also common for patients who wear braces or have worn braces in the past. Millions of Americans suffer from this disorder and we will carefully listen to your symptoms, perform an examination, and take a closer look with our innovative digital imaging technology.
We invite you to call (972) 934-6222 to schedule a FREE consultation and relieve some of the pain of TMJ/TMD.
How We Assess TMJ
During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Bietsch will examine and assess you for TMJ. We will perform a series of tests and diagnostic imaging services to help diagnose what is wrong with your jaw. Of course, we will suggest therapy over surgery to minimize the need for invasive procedures.
Patients with TMJ will typically have the following conditions:
- Facial pain
- Misaligned bottom and top teeth
- Frequent headaches or neck pain
- Locked or swelled up jaw
- Inability to open your mouth wide
- Inability to stop clenching or grinding your teeth (asleep or awake)
What Does TMJ Therapy Involve?
When we are done with your initial examination, Dr. Bietsch will suggest a variety of treatments since every TMJ/TMD patient is unique and different.
Here are some of our typical recommendations:
- Bite realignment and adjustment of your teeth
- Jaw exercises prescribed by your doctor
- Proper usage of retainers, aligners, or guards
- Surgical orthodontics
Whichever treatment is chosen in your treatment planning, we will do our best to help you relieve your pain and keep your smile healthy!
“I chose to see Dr. Bietsch from a referral from a friend. I am so happy that I did. The entire consult was all about my son and never about the doctor. I was so impressed that I chose to see him myself for some orthodontic work.”- Amy
“We love Dr. Bietsch's office. It's very easy to find a qualified orthodontist, but more difficult to find the combination of highly qualified, and caring. I feel like going above and beyond, is just normal for Dr. Bietsch and his staff.”- Kelly
“I was walked through each x-ray, necessary procedure and plan to align a jaw, straighten teeth, and make sure both my children and I were going to be happy with the results. Very impressed.”- Aimee
