Obtain treatment for TMJ/TMD with a TMJ dentist

Do you suffer from headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, or clicking or popping in your jaw? You may be suffering from TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder, a condition that can be addressed with the assistance of a TMJ doctor from The Woodlands, Texas. Our doctors at Leah Zils, DDS, can provide a thorough evaluation, ensure a proper diagnosis, and discuss ways to find jaw pain relief.

We have talked to many patients who were discouraged by chronic pain and misdiagnosis. They wondered if they would ever be able to live without painkillers again, and we were able to help them get back to living pain-free!

We can help you, too. Our team has years of experience in assisting patients with their conditions and helping to improve their quality of life.

If you experience any of these symptoms: tightness in your jaw, worn, cracked, or broken teeth, clicking and popping, difficulty opening or closing your jaw, or tension or migraine headaches, we would like to help. If you are experiencing tooth pain or a shifting bite, allow us to assess your condition and restore proper function to your jaw and muscles.

What Causes TMJ?

TMJ is often caused by multiple factors occurring at the same time that trigger TMJ symptoms. Some of these factors include restricted development of the dental arches that result in poor sleep quality, poor alignment of teeth that can lead to disc compression, muscles that are not operating harmoniously, poor posture, clenching/grinding teeth, and even stress. The body can adapt and accommodate up to a certain threshold and once that is exceeded symptoms will appear.

Treating TMJ Disorder

Because TMJ disorders are so complex, a thorough exam and evaluation are necessary. Once our assessment confirms that you are suffering from TMJ disorder, we will take time with you to discuss the proper course of treatment. We offer a wide variety of options and treatments for TMJ disorder, including splint therapy to stabilize your jaw and decompress the joint, bite adjustments, and physical therapy. While there is no quick fix or simple solution for this disorder, we have helped countless patients find relief and regain their quality of life back free from pain medication.
