Welcome to Your Family Dentist!
“I started having TMJD issues 7 years ago, started off with just popping, no discomfort or pain. I researched, read it may go away on its own, but it didn’t. My jaw began feeling stiff and painful especially at night, so I tried the following over the years: Anti inflammatory medications, a fitted mouth guard, 4 different chiropractors, Invisalign, jaw massages and exercises, OTC pain meds, and CBD topical lotion. I read Botox injected into the TMJ muscle can help so I was desperate to try it. At my appointment, I was told Botox can help with pain but may worsen the condition. I was heartbroken to say the least. I just wanted immediate relief and not another expensive treatment that fails. I reluctantly started the treatment at Premier Dental, and I am so glad I did!! I now have zero jaw/facial pain. ZERO. I could not be more thankful for Dr. Beninato and their amazing staff!!!”
If you are living with complications caused by TMJ/TMD, the team at Premier Dental is here for you. Temporomandibular joint disorder (or TMJ) is a term that describes pain or discomfort surrounding the joint and muscles in the jaw. It can be brought on by a physical injury or could occur from having misaligned teeth or an off bite. If left untreated, chronic symptoms can have a negative effect on one’s quality of life.
TMJ Disorder can cause:
- severe headaches
- neck pain
- ringing in the ears
- clicking in the jaw
- numbness or loss of sensation
- trouble sleeping
- difficulty or pain while chewing
If you have TMJ symptoms, you don’t have to suffer helplessly with chronic pain. Dr Beninato has advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ Disorders. We offer treatment options that address the root issue, rather than simply masking the problem with pain medication.
Premier Dental is only one of a select few dental offices in the entire midwest to be able to offer Biopak and TScan technology which is a state of the art digital program that allows us to analyze a patient’s bite and how it affects the muscles of the head and neck. Utilizing this technology along with our doctors advanced training helps us correct many TMJ disorders and alleviate the source of pain and the breakdown in the jaw joint.
