TMD / TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder)
Many people suffer from chronic facial and neck pain, which can be caused by Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD). This disorder is caused by Temporomandibular joints (TMJs) being overused. The TMJs connect the lower jawbone to the skull, so when you speak, chew, swallow, and yawn, you are straining the joints. TMD can also lead to recurring headaches. This pain can become unbearable and restrict your movement, which is why Frugé Orthodontics is dedicated to helping you find relief. Contact our Baton Rouge orthodontist office if you have any of the following:
- Pain in the jaw area
- Pain or ringing in the ears
- Recurring headaches or neck pain
- Muscle spasms in the jaw
- Locked jaw or limited opening of the mouth
- Popping sound when you move your jaw
- Change in teeth alignment
Our orthodontists are also skilled in treating sleep apnea, which affects your breathing during sleep. A person can stop breathing in their sleep up to 30 times per hour, causing you to wake up. Most people do not know their sleep pattern is being disturbed since they are only awake briefly. Some common causes of sleep apnea include obstructive tissues, turbinate bones, or a deviated septum. Whatever the cause, we can help you find the answers you need.
Whether you are looking to improve your smile or you suffer from severe pain or lack of sleep, Frugé Orthodontics can help. Our Baton Rouge orthodontists are dedicated to improving your quality of life and physical appearance.
