Frisco Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction: Jaw Pain Biometrics Screening Update
The practice anticipates that this new service update will encourage more Frisco residents suffering from jaw pain and other TMD-related symptoms to seek its specialized, non-invasive treatment. In addition to jaw pain, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) can cause headaches and migraines, dizziness, neck and upper back pain, anxiety and restlessness, and more. The practice hopes to provide patients relief from these symptoms through its TMJ therapy.

With this update, Millennium Smiles offers patients the opportunity to have their oral muscles evaluated with advanced biometrics to determine the cause of their symptoms. Once the dentist identifies the root cause, they will create a personalized treatment plan, which can include noninvasive corrective appliances, expansion techniques, orthodontic treatment, and myofunctional therapy.
TMJ Disorder (TMD) occurs when the temporomandibular joint, which connects the lower jaw to the skull, does not function correctly. The condition can negatively impact chewing efficacy and cause pain in various areas of the body, which can lead to sleeping impairment. If left untreated, the condition tends to worsen over time and can lead to anxiety, digestive disorders, or the need for teeth extractions.
Millennium Smiles has developed unique treatment protocols for TMD which have a proven 95% success rate. In most cases, the practice starts patients with a 12-16 week TMJ therapy plan designed to retrain the oral muscles and bring the jaw back into healthy alignment. If patients require further treatment to find full relief, Millennium Smiles can prescribe corrective appliances, orthodontic treatments, and more.

The process was nearly painless.”
