Dentist Greenville SC - Five Star Reviews
Five star review from Google
Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

Effective TMJ treatment options come from your holistic dentist in Greenville

treatment for TMJ from Dr. Palmer in Greenville SC

Although they aren’t typically the first thing you would think of when considering the oral structure, the temporomandibular joints, (hinges at the back sides of the jaw), are an integral part of comfort and general function. If irritation occurs in these joints, called TMJs, a variety of persistent, worsening symptoms can occur. Called TMJ Disorder, or TMD, this condition is treatable in a holistic manner that addresses the root cause of dysfunction.
 
TMJ disorder typically occurs when the “dental foundation” becomes damaged in some way. This foundation consists of the joints at the back of the jaw, the surrounding muscles and ligaments, and the bite. Discovering the most appropriate TMJ Disorder treatment options, as offered in our Greenville practice, comes from tracing the progression of the dysfunction.
 
What is typically discovered is:

  • The bite becomes imbalanced, placing excessive stress on the joints.
  • In response to this stress, the surrounding ligaments stretch, and the muscles adapt by lengthening and shortening.
  • In this state, muscles form trigger points for pain.

The symptoms of TMJ Disorder are varied, but may include pain at the joint, in the jaw, head, and neck, and even headaches and migraines. Often, one’s quality of life is disrupted as irritation worsens.
 
To resolve the problem of dysfunctional temporomandibular joints Dr. Palmer takes a multifactorial approach. He investigates the bite using modern tools and techniques, and considers all possible factors involved in the development of TMJ Disorder. This approach facilitates the proper treatment of the root cause of symptoms impeding a healthy, happy lifestyle.
 
Treating this condition includes identifying and addressing the imbalance that is taking place in the TM joints and the jaw, as well as the head and neck. Our guests receive treatment to reestablish balance in the oral structure. As muscles, joints, and ligaments are brought back into balance, the pain diminishes. As the bite is part of the problem in the development of TMJ Disorder, we use state of the art technology to design an optimal adjustment where necessary.
 
Those suffering from TMJ Disorder have a viable solution to their discomfort with our multifaceted approach, which includes guidance for self-care. Rather than allow dysfunctional TM joints to affect your wellbeing, contact Palmer Distinctive Dentistry for the elimination of symptoms through comprehensive treatment.
