Posted By: Varun Sharma

Arlington, Washington (November 23, 2013) – Avenue Dental Care Cosmetic & Sedation Center is offering treatment for Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ), Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD), and headaches and migraines caused by problems affecting the lower jaw and skull. The treatments are administered by a trusted Arlington dentist specializing in neuromuscular dentistry (NMD).

Pain and discomfort are caused by the imbalance involving the teeth, the temporomandibular joints, the chewing muscles, and the nerves. Generally, people who are diagnosed with TMJ disorder or TMD experience pain and tenderness in the chewing joints, stiffness and locking of the jaw muscles, and chronic headaches, migraines, and facial pain, which affect quality of life. Though painkillers can provide relief, they can only do so temporarily without fixing the root of the problem. To address the problem, the practice’s NMD dentists offer different solutions that aim to control the positioning of the jaw while relaxing the affected muscles.

For patients who wear dentures, which also contribute to the condition, the practice offers denture adjustment to correct the patients’ speaking and chewing difficulties. They also offer smile makeovers for patients who are looking for a more extensive approach. A smile makeover involves one or a combination of cosmetic dental treatments that focus on not only restoring and normalizing the jaw’s old function, but also enhancing the patients’ smile. The procedure may entail the use of implants, bridges, dental crowns, teeth whitening, and in some cases, surgery.

Employing a personalized approach, the practice consults with their patients and conducts careful evaluations in order to create a suitable treatment plan that will yield favorable results. Their experienced and board-certified dentists are equipped with all the latest knowledge and are in tune with the latest developments and methods in the dental industry. To ensure the safety and efficacy of their procedures, they use some of the latest, state-of-the-art tools and equipment available.

Aside from TMJ and TMD treatment and cosmetic dentistry, they also specialize in early dental care for infants and kids, periodontics for gum-related problems, root canals, and sedation dentistry for patients who fear going to the dental office. They also treat patients suffering from different forms of sleep apnea and snoring. They also offer special deals on examinations and x-rays for first-time patients.
