Respected Clarks Summit TMD Dentist for TMJ Symptoms Treatment

If you are constantly bothered by a sore jaw, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder. TMJ symptoms can include a clicking jaw, a popping sound when you chew or speak, and a sore jaw when you first wake.

Clarks Summit TMJ symptoms dentist Kelly, D.M.D., can help you get started on a short-term and long-term plan to alleviate much of the pain and discomfort you're experiencing. We also provide cosmetic dentistry, dental implants and braces.

But what causes TMJ disorder? Some contributing factors may include injuries to the jaw area, certain forms of arthritis, low-level infections and certain dental procedures. Untreated dental problems (crooked teeth, gum disease) can also lead to TMJ symptoms. At Kelly Dental Care we're committed to listening to you and working with you to develop a plan to treat your jaw discomfort.

Dr. Kelly will develop a treatment plan that's right for you, which may include restoration of certain teeth that may be contributing to the problem, attention to proper gum maintenance, pain relief, and a concerted effort to identify the underlying causes of your TMJ symptoms. Many of our Clarks Summit patients have discovered that relief can be obtained from simple changes in their eating and sleeping habits, although more advanced cases may require surgery.

Dental Disease Is Preventable

Developing healthy lifelong dental habits is the best way to prevent nearly every type of dental disease. Dr. Kelly recommends that you brush your teeth twice a day with a good toothpaste, floss between your teeth every day, eat a balanced diet and limit your between-meal snacks.

Be sure to schedule regular dental care by calling Kelly Dental Care at (844) 302-6661. By making smart food choices and following a healthy dental routine, you can dramatically lower your risk of developing tooth decay.

How To Avoid Crisis Dental Treatment

Many people don't see a dentist on a regular basis. They go only when they feel they have a problem. At Kelly Dental Care we call this 'crisis treatment' as opposed to 'preventive treatment.' While these patients may feel they are saving money, it usually ends up costing much more in both dollars and time. Most dental problems don't have any symptoms until they reach the advanced stages.

An example is tooth decay – it doesn’t hurt until it gets close to the nerve of the tooth. Then a costly root canal or dental crown are usually necessary, instead of the small filling, which could have been placed inexpensively several years ago when the cavity was small. If you have questions regarding dental emergencies, please call our office at (844) 302-6661 today.

Regular Dental Cleaning Can Ward Off Gum Disease

Gum disease is caused by an infection in the gum tissues and bone that keep your teeth in place and it is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. Early gum disease, or gingivitis, can be treated and reversed if diagnosed early. Unfortunately, not receiving treatment will lead to a more serious and advanced state of gum disease.

Regular cleanings and check-ups and daily brushing and flossing are key weapons in the fight against these conditions so call Kelly Dental Care today at (844) 302-6661 to schedule a checkup soon.
