What We Offer
Do you hear popping or clicking sounds in your jaw whenever you chew? If so, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder - TMJ for short. Not only is it annoying, left untreated, it can be very painful. In simplest terms, TMJ symptoms can be described as chronic inflammation of the temporomandibular joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull.
Palatine TMJ dentists Dr. Unti have diagnosed and treated many such cases. If you suffer from any pain or discomfort in your jaw, your next call should be to Palatine Complete Dental.
Treatment of TMJ syndrome and symptoms may include restoration of certain teeth that may be contributing to your jaw pain. Dr. Unti will want to speak with you about your symptoms and your jaw habits to identify the underlying causes of your TMJ symptoms. It's often possible to get relief with simple changes in your eating and sleeping habits. However, surgery is sometimes required for more advanced cases of TMJ disorder.
For quality Palatine TMJ dentistry, just call Palatine Complete Dental at (847) 359-7520 or stop in to arrange for a consultation. Dr. Unti will be happy to discuss the many affordable options available to meet your dental needs.
Don't Forget to Floss!
Clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental cleaner. Decay-causing bacteria can hid between teeth where toothbrush bristles can't reach. Flossing helps remove plaque and food particles from between teeth and under the gum line.
Visit Our Office Regularly!
Take good care of your smile. Remember to visit the dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
Mouthwash Is Important, Too!
Brushing and flossing may not be enough. The ADA now recommends using an antimicrobial mouthwash to reduce plaque and prevent gingivitis.
