Understanding TMD Appliances: Custom Solutions at Holman Family Dentistry

At Holman Family Dentistry, we understand that dental health goes beyond just maintaining a beautiful smile. We prioritize the overall well-being of our patients, which includes addressing issues like Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). TMD can cause discomfort, pain, and affect your daily life. Fortunately, we offer custom TMD appliances made in-house to provide effective solutions for our patients.

What is TMD?

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, commonly referred to as TMD, is a condition that affects the jaw joint and the surrounding muscles. It can lead to a variety of symptoms, including jaw pain, headaches, difficulty in opening and closing the mouth, and even earaches. TMD can be caused by various factors, such as teeth grinding, jaw misalignment, stress, or injury.

Our team at Holman Family Dentistry has extensive experience in diagnosing and treating TMD. One of the effective treatment options we offer is the use of TMD appliances. What sets us apart is that we design and create these appliances right here in our dental office.

Customization for Optimal Results

Every patient’s TMD condition is unique, which is why we believe in a personalized approach to treatment. Our in-house TMD appliances are custom-made to fit your specific needs. Here’s how the process works:

  1. Consultation: We begin with a thorough examination and consultation to understand your symptoms and the underlying causes of your TMD.
  2. Impressions: Once we have a clear picture of your condition, we take precise impressions of your teeth and jaw.
  3. Design: Our experienced dental professionals use these impressions to design a TMD appliance tailored to your unique bite and jaw structure.
  4. Fabrication: We utilize state-of-the-art technology to create your TMD appliance right here in our dental office. This ensures a perfect fit and optimal comfort.
