If you are experiencing jaw pain and after a consultation at Family Dental Center find that you do have TMJ disorder, we will may recommend an occlusal adjustment to help prevent further damage. This painless treatment allows for you to simply bite down on a piece of Mylar paper. This thin piece of color-transfer paper will show where any interferences are and we can then adjust them.
During this appointment, your dentist will be able to determine where the interferences are, and can shave down a small amount of your tooth’s surface for proper alignment.
If you are experiencing jaw pain, or are interested in learning more about TMJ, please feel free to call our office at (502) 410-5401!
