Your oral health doesn’t just consist of your teeth and gums; your jawbone and joints, tendons, and muscles also play a major role. Occasionally, some people may experience pain as a result of a worn-down TM joint or muscle spasms. This is commonly known as TMJ disorder, and although it can cause some painful and lingering side effects, it can be treated. At Kennebunk Center for Dentistry, we offer a variety of treatments to target your TMJ and ease the side effects. When you visit with Dr. Sheikh about receiving treatment for the TMJ in Kennebunk, Maine, she will evaluate your situation and provide you with a personalized treatment plan that will restore your comfort.
