Enjoy TMJ Therapy Treatment in Northwest Indiana

462039415You may not realize this, but two little joints in your jaw can have a dramatic impact on your oral and overall wellbeing. Known as your temporomandibular joints (TMJs), they not only connect your lower jaw to your temporal bone, they also make it possible for you to open and close your mouth easily. They don’t always work perfectly, though. Whether because of stress, an improper bite, or a range of other reasons, these joints can dysfunction. When this happens, the nerve endings around them can become exposed, resulting in a range of uncomfortable symptoms. Drs. Daniel and Robert Berquist offer TMJ therapy services at our offices in Crown Point, IN and Whiting, IN that will leave your mouth feeling like brand new.

 What Are TMJ Symptoms?

  • Morning or late afternoon pain and soreness in the jaw
  • Clicking or popping when opening or closing your mouth
  • Swelling on the side of the face
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Earaches
  • Difficulty opening and closing your mouth
  • Upper and lower teeth misalignment (malocclusion)
  • Stiffness or “locked” feeling in the jaw when talking, yawning or eating
  • Painful chewing, biting or yawning
  • Recent bite changes
  • Frequent headaches

The exact cause of a person’s TMJ disorder is often difficult to determine. Your pain may be due to a combination of problems, such as arthritis or jaw injury. Some people who have jaw pain also tend to clench or grind their teeth, but many people habitually clench their teeth and never develop TMJ disorders. That is why it is crucial to speak with Drs. Robert and Daniel Berquist to determine whether or not TMJ therapy is right for you.

As part of your treatment consultation, Dr. Robert Berquist and Dr. Daniel Berquist will also talk to you about relaxation techniques and other ways of coping with stress. Avoid chewy or hard foods if you can, as they can aggravate your symptoms. It’s also recommended that you try chewing on alternate sides of your mouth.

Learn All There Is To Know About Dental Implants

ThinkstockPhotos-177257483Broken teeth, teeth removed due to widespread damage or decay, discolored teeth – it doesn’t matter how it happened; dental implants are a necessary procedure when it comes to replacing those defunct teeth. At Berquist Family Dentistry in Crown Point, IN, we are proud to offer a full selection of advanced dental implants and other restorative dentistry services. Often misunderstood, we’re here to dispel any myths surrounding dental implants.



Dental Implants Overview

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support treatment for a missing tooth or teeth, while simultaneously helping to prevent bone loss. Dental implants aren’t needed just out of thin air – it’s the result of a long process.

But how are teeth lost to begin with? Let’s look at some factors:

  • Tooth decay
  • Root canal failure
  • Gum disease (Periodontitis)
  • Trauma to the mouth (tooth injury)
  • Excessive wear and tear
  • Congenital defects

At some point, dental implants might be the best option for you. There are several benefits to getting this procedure done:

  • Improved appearance – they look and feel like real teeth and are permanent.
  •  Improved speech – you can speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
  •  Improved comfort – implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
  •  Easier eating – implants function like your own teeth, thus allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  •  Improved self-esteem – get your smile back and feel better about yourself.
  •  Improved oral health – Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact.
  •  Durability – they are very durable and, with good care, can last a lifetime.
  •  Convenience – implants are permanent and never need to be removed, unlike dentures.

As is the case with any dental procedure, it’s best to consult with our professional staff to decide which option, if any, are right for you.

If you’re in need of any dental implant treatment, come see us! Patients in Crown Point, IN, and the surrounding communities of Merrillville, Cedar Lake, St. John and beyond are welcome to contact us regarding appointments for dental implants and other services. Watch the experts work their magic!
