TMJ/TMD Treatment in South Lake Tahoe, CA & Surrounding Areas
Put Your Jaw Pain Behind You
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD/TMJ) is associated with pain caused by either tension in the joint or muscles connecting the upper and lower jaw or potentially due to a misaligned bite. In addition, people with TMJ/TMD may suffer from frequent headaches. If you believe you have TMJ/TMD, we’re pleased to say that Dr. D’Ascoli has been providing TMJ/TMD treatment in South Lake Tahoe, CA & Surrounding Areas for more than 30 years.
Symptoms of TMJ/TMD
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may have TMJ/TMD:
- Pain in the jaw area
- Pain, ringing, or stuffiness in the ears
- Frequent headaches or neck aches
- Clicking or popping sound when the jaw moves
- Muscle spasms in the jaw area
- A change in the alignment of top and bottom teeth
- Locked jaw or limited opening of the mouth
At D’Ascoli Orthodontics, we don’t diagnose TMJ/TMD based on symptoms alone. Dr. D’Ascoli uses t-Scan BiteForce Dynamics, laser muscle therapy, and cone-beam CAT scans to get an accurate diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan.
People who suffer from TMJ/TMD are typically offered few solutions to truly overcome their disorder. Instead, they are given solutions to reduce the pain or provide temporary relief from the pain. At D’Ascoli Orthodontics, we strive to give you an effective solution for your TMJ/TMD.
We start with non-invasive techniques such as ultrasound treatments. We also offer the t-Scan BiteForce Dynamics, which lets us see a real-time movie of your bite – and the distribution of the forces within your mouth on a tooth-by-tooth basis. The end result shows us the source of your pain. Utilizing systems and methods perfected in sports medicine, we may be able to rapidly and painlessly resolve issues from which many patients have been suffering for years. Pain-free, drug-free, and needle-free, the t-Scan BiteForce Dynamics is both effective and affordable.
