When we become anxious, we can often hold that anxiety in our bodies. Many people know that their shoulders and back hold tension from stressful days at the office, but there is another common source of pain that is overlooked. Our jaw can hold as much tension as our necks or shoulders, and we often don’t even realize it. Tension in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) on either side of the mouth can lead to TMJ disorder (TMD). Patients who suffer from TMD know that it can far-reaching negative consequences. Thankfully, the experienced and committed doctors at Koala® Center for Sleep and TMJ Disorders are here to help patients with TMD find the relief they need to live the life they deserve. If you live in the Wausau, WI area and have been looking for a TMJ doctor who can provide exceptional TMJ treatment options, then look no further.
TMD has no singular cause, but there are many things that can contribute to its severity. Often, the continued stress of TMJ disorder can actually make the condition worse, so it is important to seek professional help as soon as possible in order to control the symptoms of TMD and begin the process of healing. At Koala® Center for Sleep and TMJ Disorders, we are proud to offer hope for patients with TMD, so they can regain normalcy in their life after it has been interrupted by the discomfort and pain of TMJ disorder.
TMD can cause difficulty chewing or swallowing, sleepless nights, and pain that radiates through the neck and face. If you have found yourself struggling through the day with persistent pain in your cheeks or face, it could be TMD. If you find yourself unable to fall asleep at night because of tension in your neck or head, it could mean that something is wrong with the joint that connects your upper and lower jaw. These symptoms can negatively impact a person’s life, causing them to avoid certain foods or rely on pharmaceuticals to relax and fall asleep. At Koala® Center for Sleep and TMJ Disorders, we know there is a better and more sustainable way to heal our patients’ TMD. We provide customized oral appliances that help our patients’ jaws relax in a natural and anatomically beneficial position. Once your temporomandibular joint can relax, the symptoms of TMD will eventually diminish and subside.
Our committed dental staff prides itself on the personalized attention each of our patients receives. We know how important it is to get it right when it comes to neuromuscular orthotics. After all, each appliance we create is customized to one unique person. This kind of individualized treatment is why our patients have such great success with their TMD treatment plans. By creating solutions that are tailored to each person’s unique anatomy, we are able to increase their efficacy as well as prioritize the comfort of our patients. While oral appliances can seem daunting at first, most of our patients find they are far more comfortable than they expected, and their use can vastly improve their daily life.
If you have found yourself massaging your jaw to relieve tension at work or avoiding difficulty to chew foods on your lunch break, it may be time to schedule your consultation with Koala® Center for Sleep and TMJ Disorders. We are proud to offer comprehensive treatment plans to address the symptoms and causes of TMD, so our patients can chew more easily and live a life without orofacial pain.
