TMJ Treatment Plano, TX & DFW

TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint and is used to describe dysfunction or disorders related to the joint.

“Temporo,” refers to the temple area of the skull; “mandibular,” refers to the lower jaw; and “joint” is essentially where the head and jaw meet. Problems in this joint may be caused by a trauma, misalignment of the teeth, or excess muscle tension. The two bones that meet at the jaw are buffered by cartilage and five different muscles, so TMJ can cause a variety of troubles.

Common TMJ symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Earaches
  • Trouble/soreness in opening and closing the mouth
  • Clicking or popping of the jaw
  • Pain in the jaw muscles
  • Soreness in the area, sometimes extending to the face

If you feel you are experiencing TMJ discomfort, please contact us. We may be able to identify the help you need.

Understanding TMJ Disorders

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most complex joints in the body, allowing for movement in multiple directions. TMJ disorders (TMD) can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. At Reyes & Kososki Dental, we understand how disruptive this can be to your life. Symptoms may include:

  • Jaw pain or tenderness
  • Difficulty chewing or discomfort while chewing
  • Aching facial pain
  • Locking of the joint, making it difficult to open or close your mouth

We’re here to help. Learn more about our team and values at Reyes & Kososki Dental.

Customized TMJ Treatment Plans

Our goal is to alleviate your discomfort and improve jaw function with personalized treatment plans. After a thorough evaluation, we may recommend:

  • Oral Splints or Mouthguards: These are designed to reduce clenching or grinding and can alleviate the pressure on the joint.
  • Physical Therapy: Exercises to strengthen and improve the mobility of the jaw muscles.
  • Medications: In some cases, medications can be used to relieve pain and relax the muscles.
  • Stress Management Techniques: Stress can exacerbate TMJ symptoms; we can provide guidance on how to minimize its impact.

Dr. Reyes has been such an amazing dentist for my family. We are a family of 5 and they made sure each of us were tended to with the upmost care. My kids, ages 7, 6, & 3 all felt safe and loved by the staff. Dr. Reyes made us all feel comfortable throughout our visit. We left with all smiles! The kids have been encouraged to keep their teeth clean! My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our new dentist family! Thank you for all you do for us! 10/10 recommended!

Highly recommend Reyes-Kososki Dental! Their staff was extremely friendly and accomodating to both my son and I. Their appointments were very timely, I wasn't left in the waiting room like most other dentists. You can tell that Dr. Rebecca Reyes cares about her patients and takes the time to explain everything and makes sure that everybody is comfortable with the work being performed. Billing was transparent and affordable. This was my first experience with Dr. Reyes and I was very, very impressed. I will by telling my family and friends.

What can I say? A breath of fresh air for sure! I haven't visited a dental office in over 10 years, I know, Yikes! Dr. Reyes, Monica, & Kendal All did a fantastic job, from the thorough cleaning to the 3D scanning technology, the precise and honest feedback, & all the way back to warm hospitality from the moment I walked in. This experience was 5 stars through and through! Thank you, Kososki Dental for making today an experience I'll be sure to come back for again and again! #Brush&Floss

Who likes going to the dentist? Not me! But since I like my teeth and want to keep them in my mouth, I'm so thankful for Dr Kososki and Dr Reyes and their team. They've seen me through numerous cavities and given many helpful suggestions over the years as I've dealt with jaw issues and teeth grinding - often that have saved me money! And while a cleaning is still a cleaning, I greatly appreciate their gentleness and willingness to listen. And having a dentist I can trust!

If I could give 10 stars I would! Dr. Reyes and her team were AMAZING - compassionate, empathetic, patient, asked questions and made sure my daughter who HATES the dentist felt comfortable before her deep cleaning procedure. She had not seen a dentist in almost 8 years due to her high levels of anxiety after having a bad experience. I prepped Dr. Reyes' and her team and they were so sweet, patient, kind and empathetic to her bad experience. HIGHLY recommend coming to see Dr. Reyes and her team if you or your children have any anxiety about dental procedures. Dr. Reyes is hands down the sweetest, kindest person inside and out, truly cares about her patients, her passion and knowledge exceeded my expectations and I will ALWAYS refer her to my friends and family!
