What To Do If Your Child Develops TMJ

If your child suffers from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, a visit to your dentist is in order. This is what you can expect from the appointment.

Key takeaways:

– The dentist will first determine the causes of TMJ – whether it’s teeth grinding, a bad or misaligned bite, or injury to the jaw.

– In many cases, non-invasive treatments like a mouthguard or orthodontics are needed to address this problem.

– Jaw surgery may be recommended, but this is rather rare.

The important thing is making sure your child’s dentist carefully examines teeth, gums, and jaw bone as soon as you suspect there’s a problem.
