Dr. Nicholas Cost Treats Laurens, South Carolina Patients Suffering from TMJ

Patients that experience pain when chewing, and/or clicking and popping sounds when they open and close their mouth may have a condition called temporamandibular disorder, or TMD.  TMD occurs when the patient's jaw hinge sustains stress and causes pain at the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).  Dr. Nicholas Cost helps patients relieve TMJ (http://www.smilelaurens.com/tmj/) symptoms at his office in Laurens, South Carolina.  This relief is an important way to prevent dental health issues that are associated with TMD and to ease patient discomfort.

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull at the temporal bone.  TMD can develop for a number of reasons.  It can be caused by stress, continual clenching of the jaw muscles, or teeth grinding.  When TMD does develop, patient symptoms include pain when opening and closing the jaw, trouble chewing, jaws becoming stuck open or shut, ear pain, headaches, clicking or popping sounds when opening your mouth, and teeth grinding.  All of these symptoms could be a sign that you have TMJ.

Dr. Nicholas Cost works with patients to relieve the symptoms of TMD because they are potentially damaging to your smile.  The most problematic of these symptoms is the issue of teeth grinding.  With teeth grinding, your protective enamel can wear off of your teeth, exposing dentin.  Dentin is softer than enamel and is more prone to decay and hot/cold sensitivity.  Dr. Nicholas Cost helps patients prevent the problems of teeth grinding by providing TMJ patients with night guards.  While night guards can help prevent pain, pain relievers and hot/cold compresses are also ways to relieve it.  With the help of Dr. Nicholas Cost, patients can find relief with TMJ treatments that lead to a more permanent solution.  If you think that you might be suffering from TMD and you live near Laurens, South Carolina, contact Dr. Nicholas Cost to find out more about professional TMJ treatments can relieve your pain.
