Temporomandibular Joint Disorder or TMJ disorder refers to pain in the jaw joint and/or the muscles surrounding the joint. Common symptoms of TMJ disorders are clicking and popping in the jaw joint, facial pain, headaches, and the jaw remaining “locked” open or closed. There is not one specific reason as to why TMJ pain occurs. Genetics, hormones, trauma, and even clenching your teeth can all be contributing factors for TMJ pain. Pain created by TMJ disorders can be muscular, joint, or combination of the two.
We are TMJ Specialists
Symptoms created by TMJ disorders can be frustrating for many reasons, aside from the physical pain it causes. Often, we hear our patients list a number of different physicians and specialists that were not able to help them resolve their TMJ concerns. At Dallas Surgical Arts, we know that surgery is not always the solution. While Dr. Randy and Dr. Danny Sanovich are both board-certified in TMJ disorders, they know that many TMJ cases can be addressed through conservative treatment options. Only after we have exhausted all non-surgical treatments do we then propose surgical options.
When treating the most severe cases of TMJ, Dr. Randy Sanovich & Dr. Danny Sanovich‘s expertise, board-certification, and experience ensure premium care and jaw restoration. Call us today at (972) 914-3660 to schedule an appointment!
Insurance for TMJ
If you are wondering about the costs of TMJ treatment, please note that Dallas Surgical Arts is not contracted with any medical insurance companies, and out-of-pocket costs for TMJ treatments can be quite high. We do not accept medical insurance as a form of payment. Our office is proud to participate in select financing available through CareCredit. Be sure to check with your health insurance provider regarding your out-of-network benefits or speak with our knowledgeable staff for more information regarding payment options.
