While TMJ pain may be feel debilitating right now, it’s not forever. At least, it doesn’t have to — nor should it — be.
Unfortunately, many people live with TMJ pain for so long that it becomes their “normal”. They’re so used to dealing and living with the symptoms that they assume that’s just how it is going to be. But we at TMJ Plus disagree. In fact, we aim to cut that thought out and give you back your quality of life because you deserve a better quality of life.
It’s important to treat your TMJ disorder — here are some of the long-term effects of untreated TMJ.
Now, depending on how long you’ve suffered from TMJ disorder or how severe your pain is, the road to healing most likely won’t be quick. However, it will be possible.
Here is insight into what the road to healing TMJ pain with TMJ Plus looks like.
Start with a free 15-minute Zoom call with you and Dr. Coats — all from the comfort of your own home. Just from looking at you and talking with you, Dr. Coats can get a really good feel for what’s going on with you. You are also free to ask any questions that you may have.
Initial Client Consult
While the free zoom call is great, Dr. Coats cannot give you a full diagnosis, treatment plan, and share all the information that she’s knowledgeable of in those 15-minutes. This is where the initial client consultation comes in! Then, you’re able to take that information and, if you wish, schedule that initial client consult to get the ball rolling towards healing.
In this first meeting, Dr. Coats will take various images regarding your bite, posture, and airway. She will also provide you with a lot more information regarding diagnosis, treatment plan, results, etc. But don’t worry — Dr. Coats explains everything in a way and in terms that are simple and easy to understand. She is passionate about 100% educating her patients about the problem, what’s going on, what she’ll be doing, etc. so that they all understand completely. And if you ever do have any questions, she is more than happy to answer them throughout the whole process.
One of the biggest differentiator that sets Dr. Coats at TMJ Plus apart is her approach to TMJ orthodontics and treatment. She believes in taking a holistic approach to your treatment.
What does that entail? Holistic dentistry is all about looking at your body and your health as a whole —- not just the TMJ pain you are experiencing. It also involves asking 3 questions:
- What is the connection between your teeth and the rest of your body?
- What are the best, least harmful, non-toxic methods to address any dental issues you may have?
- What’s the best solution for your body? Not every solution is right for everyone.
A holistic approach is the only solution that looks at your health from the big picture and ensures you’re getting the treatment that is best for you. This ensures that you receive the best quality of life back that you can!
Root Cause, Not Just Symptoms
Along with taking a holistic approach to your treatment, Dr. Coats focuses on identifying and treating the root cause of your problem, not just your symptoms. While the work we do certainly will bring you relief from your TMJ pain and symptoms, our plan of attack actually goes far deeper.
Some TMJ dentists will simply give you quick-fix solutions that mask the symptoms — or at least only temporarily brings relief. However, if the actual root issue isn’t resolved, you’re just going to have more pain (and problems) in the future.
At TMJ Plus, our goal is to help provide you a long-term solution for life! Whether that be checking for a misaligned bite, releasing a tongue-tie, or looking at your overall jaw structure, we want to ensure we are fixing the actual problem, not just masking the symptoms you’re experiencing.
We believe that the road to healing TMJ pain is possible, and we aim to make it as simple and easy for as many people as we can. If you’re looking for a customized solution to your TMJ pain that focuses on solving the root problem, then you’ve come to the right place.
That is exactly what we provide you at TMJ Plus!
