Rapid City TMD Treatment

Contact Dedicated Dental Solutions today to learn more about our dental services.

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) links your lower jaw with your skull’s temporal bone. These joints enable you to open or close your mouth, eat, speak, and chew. However, if you’re experiencing problems with this joint, you may have temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). At Dedicated Dental Solutions, we offer many kinds of TMD treatment to address pain or decreased functioning from TMJ disorder.

Learning the symptoms, causes, and treatment available for TMD ensures you maintain full function of your mouth. Are you struggling with pain from temporomandibular joint disorders? Contact Dedicated Dental Solutions for TMD treatment in Rapid City, SD.

Signs and Symptoms of TMD

Since many of the symptoms significantly decrease functioning and cause pain, you likely won’t be able to ignore them.

Some of the common symptoms of TMD include:

  • Jaw pain while eating or speaking
  • Jaw clicking, popping, and locking
  • Difficulty opening your mouth
  • Swelling, tenderness, or pain near your TMJ
  • Jaw gets stuck in an open or closed position
  • Fatigue in your facial muscles or mouth

Call us if you notice any of these signs and symptoms of TMD.

Patients with TMD usually want to know what caused the problem. Some of the top causes of TMJ disorder include:

The staff is incredibly warm and welcoming. (The ladies at the front desk are absolutely wonderful!) The gal (I was so nervous I totally forgot her name) that helped during my procedures is honestly an angel! They squeezed me in late on a Friday afternoon, when most offices were already closed, for a dental emergency. They walked me through everything that would happen, provided options and did an amazing job fixing my tooth. It's obvious that Dr. K and her staff care about you, your dental health and your expierence at their office. I can not recommend them enough. Hands down best dentist office in Rapid City. Thank you guys soooo much!!! (I should add I have extreme dental anxiety, I'm talking cry like a baby all day, break my nails anxiety. They worked with me so well, were so patient and kind. If you hate the dentist, I bet Dr. Kennedy and staff will change your mind!)

I have been going to Dedicate Dental Solutions for 18 years and it the only Dental office my daughter has ever been too. Dr Kennedy did a great job taking over what Dr. Sewell started. The staff is amazing and always welcome us with a smile. We love our dentist and her staff!

I have been coming here for years and in my opinion this clinic has top rate doctors and staff. It is easy to schedule appointments. Their billing for services is clearly explained and their estimates for insurance and patient portions has been very accurate. The staff makes the patient care experience very relaxed, light hearted, and they all seem to enjoy a good sense of humor. Best of all my young kids love this place and actually enjoy coming in for cleanings and regular care. Kids loving the dentist should tell you everything you need to know!

This is my place of employment. I'm writing a review because I want our patients to know that our kindness and caring nature doesn't just stop after our patients leave out the door every day. The staff is one in a million, and we all thrive to care and help one another and support each other in and out of the office. Dr. Sewell and Dr. Kennedy are fantastic people, and doctors, clinically and personally. If you're looking to find an amazing dentist, that is still kind, caring and considerate look no further. We would be honored to have you as our patient!
