Dentist Oakbrook Terrace, IL
Dr. Berley offers relief for patients experiencing TMJ, temporomandibular joint disorders, which results in pain in the joints and facial muscles surrounding your jaw.
If you encounter any symptoms of TMJ, please call us to schedule a consultation. These symptoms may include tension and tenderness in your face or jaw, difficulty with opening your mouth wide, locking or clicking or your jaw, difficulty in chewing, a tired feeling in your face, and swelling on the side of your face. Other common symptoms of TMJ include toothaches, headaches, dizziness, earaches, ringing in the ears and hearing problems.
Dr. Berley will look into your health history to assist in determining the cause of your symptoms and will examine your jaw thoroughly. He will check for locking of the jaw while opening and closing your mouth. Additionally, your bite and facial muscle function will be examined, and Dr. Berley will evaluate your jaw pain and tenderness. In some cases, x-rays will be taken to check your jaw, jaw joint and teeth for irregularities.
If you are feeling soreness or tenderness in your jaw, you should schedule an appointment at our dental office in Oakbrook Terrace in order to receive a proper diagnosis and to explore your treatment options. We can help you maintain a beautiful, healthy smile that is free of discomfort.
