TMJ & TMD Treatment
If your child is experiencing facial or jaw pain, he or she may be among the 15% of Americans who have TMJ or TMD. The disorder occurs when the jaw is not in correct alignment.
At Kids First, we offer a complete TMJ evaluation to examine the joints of your child’s jaw. Our doctors will often prescribe pain relievers and cold compresses for mild cases.
For more serious cases of TMJ and TMD, your child’s doctor will discuss several individualized treatment options available that may include mouthguards, orthodontic appliances, and retainers.
At Kids First Pediatric Dentistry, we are proud to offer your child the both traditional metal braces or clear removable Invisalign braces.
