There it is. That nagging, uncomfortable jaw pain that always seems to accompany you every single day. Or maybe it’s the same story, except you experience headaches for frequent migraines.
Guess what? You don’t have to struggle silently alone and in pain anymore. There’s a highly-experienced Denver dentist bringing relief to so many patients with effective TMJ treatments in Greenwood Village. It’s time you talked to Dr. Christopher Macri and the knowledgeable team at Macri Dental.
Why Should I Care About TMJ Disorder?
You deserve a smile that’s as functional and healthy as it can be, going beyond what’s considered normal care of brushing, flossing, and hygiene cleanings. You have to take into consideration other parts of your body that affect your oral health, particularly your TMJ or temporomandibular joint. These powerful joints connect the jawbone to the skull at the base of your ears and have a pretty big responsibility of helping us chew and communicate every day.
But what happens when your TMJ is constantly inflamed or in pain? It could mean you’re experiencing one of the most common symptoms of TMD or temporomandibular disorder. Dr. Macri has extensive experience understanding and knowing what to look for in terms of TMD. He previously taught a course all about TMJ/TMD dentistry and enjoys helping people find pain relief.
How Can TMJ Treatment in Denver Help Me?
There are numerous ways to combat TMD, but we want to find what’s most effective and comfortable for you. While Dr. Macri is not a specialist or doesn’t specialize in treating TMD, he’s an excellent, informed resource to have in your corner to fight it.
Following a thorough examination, he might recommend you consider something called splint therapy. You start out wearing your customized, comfortable splint 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except for when you’re eating. From there, we monitor your progress for two weeks until we’re sure we’re seeing improvement. Once you start to heal, Dr. Macri will cut back on the amount of time you wear your splint.
We want you to experience how good life can be when it’s pain-free. If we can’t find a solution for you at our Greenwood Village dental office, we won’t stop until we get you the help you need.
