TMJ Dentist

Dr. Lucido in Alton recommends that you should seek professional dental care if you're experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Jaw pain or soreness, more noticeable in the morning or afternoon
  • Jaw pain while chewing, biting, or yawning
  • Earache without an infection, sometimes spreading into the face
  • Soreness in front of the ear
  • A clicking or grinding noise while opening and closing your mouth
  • Difficulty opening and closing your mouth
  • A stiff jaw when eating, talking, or yawning
  • Sensitive teeth without any signs of dental problems
  • Aching on the side of the head and neck pain
  • A burning sensation in the mouth/tongue
  • Grinding of your teeth
  • Restricted range of jaw movement or "locking" of the jaw in an open or closed position

A thorough dental examination by Dr. Lucido is the first step toward finding a solution. Depending on the diagnosis, treatments may include reshaping teeth, bite guards, and muscle relaxants.
