Attack Of The Gummi Bear: TMD in Fishers

Fishersaffordable family dentist

You already know that sugar poses one of the big threats to healthy teeth. Eating candy and other sweets creates the perfect environment for cavity-causing bacteria to thrive in your mouth. At Dental Care Today in Fishers, we remind you that certain sweets can also be associated with TMD.

In the case of TMD (Temporomandibular Disorder) it’s not so much the sugar content, but chewing on sticky candy, like gummi bears and a host of similar treats. The temporomandibular joint is your jaw.  The jaw is a delicate joint, and chewing on sticky candy increases stress – and the possibility of taking the jaw out of alignment.

TMD is a painful disorder, and while its exact causes are not known, chewing on sticky candy may contribute. TMJ can usually be treated with non-invasive methods, including relaxation techniques, diet and lifestyle modifications, or orthodontic treatment.

Physical therapy is also effective for treating more severe cases of TMD. If required, Dental Care Today can refer you to a physical therapist who specializes in TMD treatment.

In addition to TMD and bite misalignment diagnosis and treatment, Dental Care Today offers cosmetic dentistry services, including teeth whitening  and porcelain veneers.

Along with a healthy jaw, we want you to have an exceptional smile that you can be proud of. If you have any questions about TMD, cosmetic dentistry, or general dentistry, give Dental Care Today in Fishers a call to set up an appointment.

Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

—Pat S.

Jeanie M.

I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

—Jeanie M.

Leslee D.

I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

—Leslee D.

Cindy M.

My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

—Cindy M.

Judy S.

The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!

—Judy S.
