TMJ & TMD TREATMENT
TMJ & TMD Treatment
When you have constant jaw or facial pain, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder, referred to as TMJ or TMD. When the jaw joint or the muscle surrounding the joint become stressed or worn out, they can become painful and cause functional issues in the jaw. At Vista Dental Care, we offer effective general dentistry treatment for TMD/TMJ at our friendly office in Ontario, CA.
The temporomandibular joint and surrounding muscles can become damaged, causing pain or discomfort. Patients with TMJ or TMD often have an aching jaw or pain in the facial area around the jaw. There can be a clicking or popping sound when the jaw is opened or closed. In some cases, the jaw may be difficult to open or become "locked" in place.
To treat TMJ, we first must diagnose the issue. Dr. Michael Min is an expert at diagnosing and treating temporomandibular joint disorders. He can determine the best option for providing relief from pain and discomfort while providing the joint with support.
Jaw Pain, Facial Pain Relief!
Although there is not one specific cause of TMJ, often it can occur in people that clench their jaw or grind their teeth at night. One treatment that can provide relief for patients with TMD is a customized nightguard. This oral appliance adjusts the jaw while you sleep, relieving pressure on the joint and muscles. It also prevents teeth grinding, protecting your teeth from damage while you sleep. An extra benefit is that it can help with snoring. Dr. Min can customize the nightguard to perfectly fit your mouth so it is comfortable while you sleep. You can wake up each morning without the pain and discomfort you have been experiencing due to pressure on your jaw.
If you think you may be suffering from TMJ/TMD, contact Vista Dental Care today to schedule an appointment. We can help determine if that is the cause of your jaw or facial pain and find a treatment that will give you relief.

Easily one of the best hidden gems in Ontario. Dr. Min and his staff are really caring people. Having been to the bigger chain dentist and upscale offices, vista dental has them beat. I really did feel at ease here and this is coming from someone who has anxiety lol. I love this place!!! You guys are great!
They care about each of their clients. The doctors work with each person to give the dental care they deserve at a price that is fair. The reception desk workers are kind and helpful. The communication between the patient and the office is incredible. I have recommended them to friends and will continue to do so!
I recently had my dentist in AZ extract my tooth. 4 days later I was experiencing unbearable pain while working in Ontario, CA and I found Dr. Min's office online. He was great, fixed the problem, and explained everything to my understanding 10X better than my original dentist in AZ. Thanks Dr. Min!
