NEED dental help?

Welcome to Pleasanton Dental Care, where we specialize in providing effective TMJ treatment solutions that can alleviate your jaw pain and discomfort. We understand that living with TMJ issues can be frustrating and painful, affecting your daily life. Explore the world of TMJ treatment, shedding light on how we can help you regain a pain-free life.

What is TMJ?

TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) is a complex hinge joint that connects your jawbone to your skull. This remarkable joint plays a pivotal role in your daily life, facilitating essential functions such as speaking, chewing, and even yawning. 

It operates seamlessly when functioning correctly, allowing you to enjoy these activities without a second thought. However, TMJ disorder can introduce a range of uncomfortable and often painful symptoms that can disrupt your quality of life.

Common Causes of TMJ Disorder

TMJ disorder can arise from various factors, including:

  • Trauma: Physical injury to the jaw or joint area can disrupt the normal functioning of the TMJ.
  • Bruxism (Teeth Grinding): Habitual teeth grinding or clenching can place excessive stress on the TMJ, leading to discomfort.
  • Arthritis: Certain types of arthritis can affect the TMJ, causing inflammation and pain.
  • Stress: High levels of stress can contribute to jaw tension and muscle clenching, aggravating TMJ symptoms.
  • Malocclusion: An improper bite alignment can strain the TMJ, resulting in pain and discomfort.
  • Habitual Chewing: Excessive gum chewing or frequent consumption of hard or chewy foods can overwork the TMJ.

Symptoms of TMJ Disorder

TMJ disorder can manifest in a variety of ways, including:

  • Jaw Pain: Persistent or recurrent pain in the jaw joint, which may range from mild discomfort to severe, debilitating pain.
  • Clicking or Popping: Audible sounds, such as clicking or popping, when moving the jaw, which can be both disconcerting and uncomfortable.
  • Headaches: Tension headaches that often radiate from the jaw area and can be a significant source of discomfort.
  • Ear Pain: A persistent, dull ache in the ear region, which may be a secondary symptom of TMJ disorder.

Seeking Treatment for TMJ Disorder

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, seeking professional evaluation and treatment is crucial. At Pleasanton Dental Care, our dedicated team specializes in diagnosing and treating TMJ disorders. We'll work closely with you to create a personalized treatment plan, helping you regain comfort and improve your quality of life.

Here are several treatment options available for people with TMJ: 

Lifestyle Modifications

Simple lifestyle changes can make a significant difference for mild cases of TMJ. These may include dietary adjustments, stress reduction techniques, and jaw exercises.


Medications may need to be prescribed to relieve pain and inflammation. These can include muscle relaxants, pain relievers, and anti-inflammatory drugs.

Dental Appliances

Custom-made dental splints or mouthguards can help alleviate TMJ symptoms by repositioning the jaw and reducing the impact of grinding or clenching teeth.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy exercises can strengthen the jaw muscles and improve joint function.

Botox Injections

In some cases, Botox injections can provide relief by relaxing the jaw muscles responsible for TMJ pain.


For severe cases of TMJ, surgery may be considered. This is typically a last resort when other treatments have proven ineffective.

Greatest experience I’ve ever had—highly recommend this office to anyone! Dr. Eunice and her staff were all so kind and professional. My cleaning and fillings were done promptly and with great care. I couldn’t even tell I had fillings put in when it was all said and done.

Thank you so much for the beautiful pink roses. You gave me a very special surprise and I appreciate it. I am enjoying having my new front bottom bridge. It looks so natural and it is very comfortable and fits well. Thank you to you Debbie, Mary Ann, Jessica and Susan for making my dental care such a positive and informative pain free experience.
