FAQ about TMD

1. Can TMJ Disorder cause headaches?

 

Yes! TMJ Disorder can lead to headaches due to the impact on surrounding tissues, including muscles, nerves, and blood vessels. This can stimulate the trigeminal nerve, resulting in facial pain and intense headaches often mistaken for migraines.

2. How does Facial Growth Treatment help with TMJ Disorder?

 

Facial Growth Treatment addresses the root cause of TMJ Disorder, focusing on bite issues that create stress on the jaw joints. Unlike traditional methods that may involve tooth removal or repositioning, facial growth treatment promotes natural jaw growth to create more space for teeth, allowing for a balanced bite without extractions or extensive orthodontic adjustments.

3. Why is Facial Growth Treatment considered a more effective approach for TMJ Disorder?

 

Facial Growth Treatment targets the cause of TMJ Disorder rather than just managing symptoms. By allowing the jaw to develop naturally, it relieves pressure on the temporomandibular joints, promoting healthier and pain-free jaw function.

 

4. Are there any age limitations for Facial Growth Treatment?

 

Facial Growth Treatment is effective for individuals of various ages. While it is often initiated during childhood or adolescence when jaw growth is most active, adults can also benefit from this approach. Dr. Q can assess your specific situation and determine if you are a candidate for Facial Growth Treatment.

5. How long does it take to see results with Facial Growth Treatment?

 

The timeline for results with Facial Growth Treatment can vary depending on individual factors and the severity of the jaw issues. In some cases, improvements may be noticeable within a few months, while others may require more extended treatment. Dr. Q will provide a personalized treatment plan and timeline during your consultation.

6. Can TMJ Disorder affect my ability to eat and speak?

 

Yes, severe TMJ Disorder can lead to difficulties in eating and speaking. It may cause jaw pain and limited mobility, making it challenging to open and close the mouth properly. Facial Growth Treatment can help alleviate these issues by addressing the underlying causes of TMJ Disorder.

7. Is Facial Growth Treatment a permanent solution for TMJ Disorder?

 

Facial Growth Treatment aims to provide a long-lasting solution for TMJ Disorder by addressing the root cause. However, individual results may vary. Regular follow-ups and maintenance may be recommended to ensure continued relief from TMJ symptoms. Dr. Q will discuss the expected outcomes and any necessary follow-up care during your treatment plan.
