Dental Insurance needed for TMJ treatment

Posted on May. 5th 2011 by Dental Plan Reviews in TMJ 2 Comments »

Dental Insurance needed for TMJ treatment. I have TMJ and I need to find a dental insurance plan that offer benefits for the treatment of TMJ. I am 26 and may need to have braces. However plan current dental plan does not offer benefits for TMJ issues. I need to do something since I wake up every morning with my jaw locking and hurting me on and off though out the day. Do you have any dental plans that can help me. I live in Washington if that is helpful to you. Thanks .

TMJ, Having a hard time dealing with my TMJ issues

TMJ and dealing with a Bite Splint

I am currently being treated for Temporomandibular joint  syndrome or other wise referred to as TMJ.  I have been fitted with a bite splint that I have to wear at night.  This helps keep me from grinding my teeth while I sleep.  Or at least that is want I am told.  It is more like I am not grinding my teeth at night because I can not sleep with the bite splint in my mouth.

Braces and posible TMJ issues

Posted on Dec. 31st 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Braces, TMJ 2 Comments »

I have crooked teeth not real bad but something I would like to fix.  I also think I may have a case of TMJ.  Not 100% sure but I do have TMJ systoms.  So my question is should I fix the TMJ first if I do indeed have TMJ.  Or can I get the braces first and worry about the TMJ after?  I would rather fix my crooked teeth.  Does anyone know?

Jogging with TMJ

Posted on Dec. 29th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help, TMJ 3 Comments »

I love to jog but have TMJ

I have a bad case of TMJ and I have to wear a splint for my mouth.  Much like a night guard.  I use to jog daily but was told that I should go easy on any jarring motions.  I am not supposed  to bite down on the splint but I find myself doing that when I go jogging.  How bad would it be if I did not ware it while I was jogging?  I need to do something in order to stay in shape.  Jogging as always been what I did.

Cracking and Popping jaw

Posted on Dec. 16th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help, TMJ 2 Comments »

Why is my jaw cracking and popping ?

My jaw for the longest time would make cracking or popping noises.  Not all the time only once in a while.  It never hurt so I did not give to much  thought to it.  However with the last few weeks it is happening more and more.  It sounds as if it is coming from behind my back teeth.  It still dose not really hurt or anything but once in a while it feels as if my jaw is locking.  Not for long like really quick but I still can feel it.  Anyone have an idea as to what it can be?

What is the temporomandibular joint

Posted on Dec. 11th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, Dental News, General News, Hygiene, TMJ No Comments »

Understanding the beginning of TMJ

The temporomandibular joint connects the lower jaw, called the mandible, to the bone at the side of the head—the temporal bone. If you place your fingers just in front of your ears and open your mouth, you can feel the joints. Because these joints are flexible, the jaw can move smoothly up and down and side to side, enabling us to talk, chew and yawn. Muscles attached to and surrounding the jaw joint control its position and movement.

What are the signs and symptoms of TMJ

Posted on Dec. 9th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, General News, Oral Surgery, Root Canals, TMJ No Comments »

A variety of symptoms may be linked to TMJ disorders. Pain, particularly in the chewing muscles and/or jaw joint, is the most common symptom. Other likely symptoms include:

  • radiating pain in the face, jaw, or neck,
  • jaw muscle stiffness,
  • limited movement or locking of the jaw,
  • painful clicking, popping or grating in the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth,
  • a change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together.

What causes TMJ disorders

Posted on Dec. 8th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Braces, Dental Help, General News, Health News, Hygiene, Oral Surgery, TMJ No Comments »

Trauma to the jaw or temporomandibular joint plays a role in some TMJ disorders. But for most jaw joint and muscle problems, scientists don’t know the causes. For many people, symptoms seem to start without obvious reason. Research disputes the popular belief that a bad bite or orthodontic braces can trigger TMJ disorders. Because the condition is more common in women than in men, scientists are exploring a possible link between female hormones and TMJ disorders.

How are TMJ disorders treated

Posted on Dec. 7th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Braces, Dental Help, Dental News, General News, Health News, Hygiene, Oral Surgery, TMJ No Comments »

Because more studies are needed on the safety and effectiveness of most treatments for jaw joint and muscle disorders, experts strongly recommend using the most conservative, reversible treatments possible. Conservative treatments do not invade the tissues of the face, jaw, or joint, or involve surgery. Reversible treatments do not cause permanent changes in the structure or position of the jaw or teeth. Even when TMJ disorders have become persistent, most patients still do not need aggressive types of treatment.

How are TMJ disorders diagnosed?

Posted on Dec. 6th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, Hygiene, Oral Surgery, TMJ No Comments »

There is no widely accepted, standard test now available to correctly diagnose TMJ disorders. Because the exact causes and symptoms are not clear, identifying these disorders can be difficult and confusing. Currently, health care providers note the patient’s description of symptoms, take a detailed medical and dental history, and examine problem areas, including the head, neck, face, and jaw. Imaging studies may also be recommended.

Why do my teeth hurt

Posted on Dec. 1st 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, TMJ, Tooth Aches 1 Comment »

Jaw and teeth pain

The back of my teeth top and bottom are starting to hurt.   Lately I have been noticing that my jaw and the back of my teeth hurt. They are sore and I can not seem to really open my mouth wide.  I went to the dentist and he told me that I do not have any cavities and my teeth are fine.   I did not at the time tell him how they were hurting because it just started.

My jaw hurts when I open my mouth, it’s been hurting for about a year

Posted on Aug. 18th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help, Dental News, General News, TMJ No Comments »

There can be many resons for your pain.  You may be  grinding your teeth when you sleep making your jaw hurt.  You also may have TMJ.  Some of the systoms of TMJ is jaw pain, and craking poping sounds.  Either way I would check with your dentist and see what they advise.

Overbite and dont get braces will it affect you later?

Posted on Aug. 10th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Braces, Dental Help, TMJ No Comments »

It can depend on the degree of your overbite. You may want to discuss this with an orthodontic dentist. After discussing it with an orthodontic dentist you feel that it would not cause any bite or TMJ issue latter, then it is really up to you weather you feel like you want them to correct the overbite of not.

My jaw keeps locking

Posted on Aug. 4th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Braces, Dental Help, Technology, TMJ No Comments »

I did some searching regarding your problem. It seems to be a common,problem for people. Most of what I could find were saying that it is a TMJ issue or perhaps you are clenching/grinding your teeth at night when you are asleep.
