Teeth grinding and clenching is known to cause damage to the teeth’s dentition. But, with the right treatment, this damage can be stopped, which means that early diagnosis is a must. For patients, this means that such conditions need to be treated almost immediately to protect from further damage that can lead to worsening oral and dental health.
Early Diagnosis Is Key
In the end, while TMJ may be preventable, prevention requires that diagnosis be made almost immediately.

If you suffer from jaw pain, neck pain, headaches, or other TMJ symptoms, call or email Dr. Siegel’s office today. Schedule an appointment to learn more about TMJ and the available treatment that can protect your teeth and your jaw bone.
