Refrain From Migraine And Snoring - TMJ Treatment

The Temporomandibular Joint connects the jaw to the skull. When this joint is damaged or injured, it will lead to pain and uneasiness. This TMJ joint only helps to chew, yawn, talk, and move the jaw up and down. The temporomandibular joint distortion results in wrong breathing and inconsistent chewing. It happens because the upper and lower teeth do not occlude normally. There will be a shift in the mandibular position and the body is propelled to find a solution to this issue. The altered mandible articulates with the skull in many ways leading to a TMJ disorder. As important nerves undergo prolonged stimulation in this region, it leads to many discomforts.

A highly sophisticated tracking device helps to determine the actual position of the mandible. To fill out the space between the teeth, a lower splint is constructed.

Phase II: After six months, the splint is removed and with the help of orthodontic therapy space is closed permanently.

Let's Smile Perfectly

Invisalign is a best option for the people to improve their appearance of smile. Invisalign aligners are used to straighten crowded or crooked teeth’s, adjust overbites and close gaps. The Invisalign treatment contains wearing of clear plastic trays which are customized according to the mouth shape and a less noticeable option in comparison to metal braces. Invisalign is a very common and less observable teeth straightening device. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit comfortably over the teeth. Each aligner shifts the teeth slightly, moving them vertically and horizontally and rotating, when needed. Aligners are plotted to develop a right amount of force at the right time in the right place. It takes less time to make teeth better and comfortable. It is also a good option for several dental problems such as overbite, under bite, cross bite or spacing. Invisalign works great in the straightening out the front teeth.

It is very important to brush and floss regularly after each meal to make Invisalign effective and useful. Not any other product is recommended to clean the teeth as they may be discoloring the aligners and develop a yellowish color on the teeth. The aligners are just like bleaching tray and soaked food and low pH saliva if they are trapped. Invisalign maintain a better hygiene over braces. It is recommended to wear the aligners at least 20-22 hours per day to get desired results. This includes changing of new set of aligners every two weeks during the treatment period.

Invisible Braces: Smile Confidently

Everyone want a great smile, but a majority of people need help in getting there. More and more people are having success with clear orthodontic devices called invisible braces.

Braces make use of brackets, which are connected by wires to help the teeth to move. Clear or invisible braces aren't for everyone. The dentist will help decide what’s best for you.

Can anyone get invisible teeth aligners?
As the invisible braces are custom-built for a tight fit, they are best for only adults or teens. Straightening a child’s teeth is way more complicated. Young people, and their mouths are still growing and developing so invisible braces are not suited for children.
Clear orthodontic braces are typically used for patients who have mild or moderately crowded teeth, or have minor spacing issues. Patients who have severe crowding or spacing problems or severe under bites, overbites, or cross bites may need more complex treatment.
How do they work?

Once a dentist decides how to correct your bite, they'll make a plan for moving your teeth. If you get the clear braces, you’ll be fitted for several versions that make slight adjustments to move your teeth over the treatment time.
They’re made from a clear plastic or acrylic material and fit tightly over the teeth.
How long does it take to straighten teeth using invisible braces?
Treatment time with invisible teeth braces is based on how much the teeth need to be moved or rotated. The more your bite is off or the more crooked your teeth, the longer it will take. Treatment usually takes between 10 and 24 months. As someone who has had braces previously, and your teeth has shifted slightly overtime, invisible braces are required for about 10 to 12 weeks.

Smile Architect, Bangalore offers a wide range of treatments and is specially recognised for Invisible Braces treatment.

Say Goodbye to Pain With TMJ Disorder

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your skull to your jaw bone. You have one joint on each side of the jaw. TMJ disorders — a type of temporomandibular disorder or TMD — can cause pain in your jaw’s joint and in the muscles that control the jaw’s movement.

The exact cause of a person's TMJ disorder is often tough to determine. Your pain might be due to a combination of factors, such as genetics, arthritis or injury. Some individuals who have jaw pain also tend to clench or grind their teeth, although many individuals habitually clench or grind their teeth and never develop TMJ disorders.
In most cases, the pain and discomfort related with TMJ disorders is momentary and can be relieved with medication or nonsurgical treatments. Surgery is typically a last option after conservative actions have failed, but some people with TMJ disorders may benefit from surgical treatment.
What are the Symptoms?
  • Pain or tenderness in the jaw
  • Pain in one or both the temporomandibular joints
  • Aching pain in or around your ear
  • Difficulty in chewing or pain while chewing
  • Aching facial pain
  • Locking of the joints, making it difficult to open or close your mouth

TMJ disorders can also cause a clicking sound or grating sense when you open your mouth to chew. But if there's no pain or limitation of movement associated with it, you probably don't need treatment for a TMJ disorder.
How Is It Treated?
There are a number of ways through which TMJ Disorder is treated. Therapies like Oral splints or mouth guards (Splint therapy, orthodontic therapy, occlusal appliances, Physical therapy & Counseling are also recommended. If nothing works then it has to be treated using surgery.

Smile Architect, is the leading Dental Clinic in Bangalore which provides the best treatment for TMJ Disorder
