How to fix TMJ issues at Shelby Township area dental practices

Patients who have been diagnosed with TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) will experience a number of problems. The TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is the jaw joint that opens and closes the mouth. When it is not functioning properly, patients may experience several issues, including the jaw locking up, damaged teeth, headaches, and pain in the face, neck and shoulders. By finding out how to fix the TMJ, Shelby Township area residents can finally enjoy relief from the pain and discomfort associated with it.

How to fix TMJ issues at Shelby Township by Dr. John L. Aurelia

TMJ problems can be addressed by a qualified dentist who offers TMD/TMJ oral appliances. In most cases, patients with TMD will tend to clench and grind their teeth, either during the day, or more typically, at night. When this happens, it can cause damage to the teeth and tension in the face, neck, and shoulders. Dentists such as Dr. John L. Aurelia can provide these appliances.

Oral appliances can help relieve many of the issues associated with the TMJ. These appliances are made of medical grade clear plastic and are molded to fit the patient’s dental arch. It will help in aligning the bite and ensuring that the teeth are protected from unwanted clenching and grinding.

Many patients find great relief in using oral appliances to address their TMD/TMJ issues. They are comfortable to wear, affordable, and effective in managing the problems that come from having temporomandibular joint disorder. Dr. John L. Aurelia can help his patients understand the disorder, receive an official diagnosis from a dental professional, and find ways to manage the condition properly while protecting their overall health and well-being.

If you believe that you are experiencing problems with your TMJ, or if you have recently been diagnosed with TMD, it may be time to visit Dr. John L. Aurelia. You can learn more about oral appliance therapy, and the way it can help eliminate the pain and discomfort you feel due to this condition. The practice is conveniently located outside of the Shelby Township area in Rochester Hills, where he is currently accepting new patients at his practice.

Review Posted By Real Users
I have been bouncing around to dentists' offices for the past four years trying to find one that (1) doesn't hurt my face and mouth and (2) doesn't gross me out. My most recent dentist prior to Dr. Aurelia reeked of smoke and insisted on not wearing gloves when he fit my bite guard because otherwise it wouldn't fit properly. After that disgusting experience, I was out of there and dentist-less once again. I came across some Google reviews for Dr. Auerlia and thought I'd give his office a try. At the very least, it couldn't be worse than the last guy, right?

Even though Dr. Aurelia is out of network for my insurance, his office is well worth the extra out of pocket cost. His office got me in for an initial consult almost immediately because I had some pain concerns. They identified the issues right away and helped me get into a specialist for (another) root canal (on the same tooth - the horror!) the next day. I needed a filling in between my two front teeth and he was able to do the filling without novocain and I didn't feel a thing. I have my first cleaning next week so I will find out then how efficient they are with that (it took 90 solid minutes of my mouth being agape at my last dentist which is way too long), which is my last area of general wonderment about the quality of services provided. I can't imagine I'll need to find a new dentist anytime soon. If you are looking for an office full of helpful and friendly people and want high-quality, timely, and cost-conscious (i.e., won't do unnecessary work to get more monies) dental care, I highly recommend checking out Dr. Aurelia's office.
