Understanding Your Pain
When people think of orthodontics, they often associate it solely with straightening crooked teeth. There's more to the story. Many may not realize that there are two distinct branches of orthodontics: Traditional and TMJ (also known as functional). While both address oral and dental issues, TMJ orthodontics is a specialized field for good reason. Consulting a traditional orthodontist is a straightforward choice if you require teeth straightening. However, when dealing with TMJ disorder, the choice of orthodontist becomes critical. Not all orthodontists are equipped to handle TMJ issues, and choosing the wrong one can exacerbate your condition.

Ways We Keep Our Patients Dental Anxiety-Free
Orthodontics is a specific type of dentistry that focuses on treating misaligned teeth, malocclusion, and even jaw irregularities. Some common orthodontic treatments include braces, clear aligners, and retainers. Although orthodontics is an extremely effective way to treat crooked or misaligned teeth, some side effects come with the use of orthodontic treatments such as traditional braces:
If your braces treatment also includes the realignment of your jaw, your chances of experiencing jaw pain increase. This can especially be evident after orthodontic appointments when your braces are tightened. If your jaw pain is severe or persists for a long period of time, TMJ orthodontics in Woburn and Winchester, MA, may be necessary to ease your symptoms.
Using braces to correct the spacing and alignment of your teeth is bound to be somewhat uncomfortable at times. The gradual shifting of your teeth can cause tooth pain or occasional headaches. Also, you may experience irritation due to the new feeling of wires and brackets within your mouth. These symptoms can generally be eased with the use of orthodontic wax.
One of the most common symptoms of braces is difficulty chewing and eating certain foods, such as chewy foods like candy or hard foods like popcorn. This symptom can be especially prevalent after your braces are tightened. If jaw movement problems don’t seem to improve, visiting a Woburn and Winchester TMJ dentist is the next best step to easing your TMJ symptoms.
