TMJ/Occlusal Treatment

What is TMJ/Occlusal Treatment?

TMJ and occlusal treatment target issues related to the jaw joint and teeth alignment. The temporomandibular joint connects the jaw to the skull, and problems, known as TMJ disorders, can cause pain and hinder jaw movement. Occlusal treatment assesses and adjusts the bite, addressing issues that contribute to TMJ disorders, such as headaches and muscle tension. Treatment options include orthodontics, dental restorations, and oral appliances to enhance tooth alignment and reduce jaw strain. A comprehensive approach involves a dentist’s thorough examination, potentially combining tailored therapies like physical therapy, lifestyle changes, and stress management for effective symptom relief.

TMJ/Occlusal Treatment

Our Approach to TMJ/Occlusal Treatment


Comprehensive Examination

Our experienced dentists will conduct a thorough examination, including diagnostic imaging, to assess the condition of your jaw joint and the alignment of your teeth.


Individualized Treatment Plans

We believe in personalized care. Based on the examination results, we'll create a customized treatment plan that addresses your specific TMJ or occlusal issues.


The Occlusal Adjustment

We utilize advanced techniques to make precise adjustments to the surfaces of your teeth, ensuring that they come together properly when you bite. This can alleviate strain on the jaw joint and surrounding muscles.


Orthodontic Solutions

In some cases, orthodontic treatment may be recommended to correct misalignments and improve the overall bite. We offer a range of orthodontic options to suit your needs, including traditional braces and Invisalign.


Night Guards and Splints

For patients who grind their teeth at night, custom-fitted night guards or splints can help protect the teeth and alleviate stress on the jaw joint.


Physical Therapy

In conjunction with dental treatments, we may recommend specific exercises or physical therapy to improve jaw function and reduce discomfort.

I went to another local dentist and they couldn’t schedule my cleaning for 6 months and even cancelled my appointment months before it was to even happen! Found this place and they got me in so quickly and the staff was so patient and accommodating. Scheduling is so easy and they are quick! I’m so happy to have found them!

New to North River Dental. Broke a tooth. They got me in the next day, put a temporary crown in, and now waiting for the permanent one. The staff and dentist were friendly, thorough, and efficient. The cost was lower than they originally quoted me, so they are honest too. So far, so good!

I’m not a client of North River Dental,instead I’m apart of their extended family. This is how I feel about the staff,and the quality of care exceeded the 5 stars. That’s why I constantly recommend it to family and friends.

I had bad experiences as a kid going to the dentist and I have anxiety when I go. So I stayed away from dentists. Needless to say my teeth got bad as I aged. I needed dentures and I went to North River Dental for implants and I was quite anxious about the procedure. The dentist and staff were very understanding and explained the process to me. My fears soon left as the procedure was painless and the outcome was great. It’s been 3 years since I had it done and I’m glad I chose the folks at North River.
