Why Wake Forest patients should visit a TMD Specialist
TMD, which stands for temporomandibular joint disorder, is a condition that can affect anyone. The jawbone, known as the TMJ, can become troublesome and cause pain and discomfort to patients. It can result in:
- Chronic headaches
- Wear and tear on the natural tooth structure
- Problems opening and closing the mouth
- Clicking and snapping while chewing or talking
- Grinding and clenching of the jaw during sleep
- An uncomfortable bite
- Swelling of the face
Dr. Edmond Suh, of Wake Forest, is a TMD specialist who can help patients dealing with this issue.
It is important for patients to visit a TMD specialist for the diagnosis and treatment of this condition. Dr. Edmond Suh understands the dynamics of the neuromuscular structure that surrounds the TMJ. He has worked with hundreds of patients in treating the issue and finding the proper method of control. In most cases, patients will benefit from the use of an oral appliance.
Oral appliance therapy is a wonderful way for patients to control the pain and discomfort associated with TMD. Patients can protect their natural teeth and reduce the tension caused by the TMJ during the night. Patients can reduce wear and tear on their teeth and can wake up in the morning without headaches and pain. This can have a dramatic effect on their overall quality of life, and allow patients to go about their day without use of over-the-counter pain medications.
