Discover the Path to a Pain-Free Life With TMJ Treatment

TMJ disorders can show a variety of symptoms, such as jaw pain, headaches, tooth sensitivity, and even neck and shoulder pain. These symptoms can disrupt your daily activities and lower your quality of life. Some of the most common causes of TMJ disorders include teeth grinding, misaligned teeth, and injury to the jaw.

When you visit our office, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination to determine if a TMJ disorder is the cause of your symptoms. If so, they will create a bite guard that will fit comfortably over your teeth and reduce the strain on your jaw muscles and joints. They may also recommend Invisalign, if your TMJ problems are related to teeth alignment.

You can expect numerous benefits:

  • Greater Protection – A bite guard protects your teeth from grinding and clenching, preventing further wear and tear.
  • Comfortable Fit – Your custom-made oral appliance will fit your mouth perfectly, ensuring comfort and ease of use throughout the night.
  • Pain Relief – A bite guard helps lessen pain and discomfort in your jaw, head, and neck by reducing pressure on your TMJs.
  • Improved Sleep Quality – You can enjoy a more restful and uninterrupted sleep by reducing nighttime grinding and clenching.
  • Long-Term Usage – Your bite guard is made of high-quality and durable materials designed for long-term use.
  • Better Oral Health – By wearing your bite guard nightly, you protect your teeth and jaw from additional damage. This promotes long-term oral health.

It’s possible your TMJ dysfunction may be caused by sleep apnea. If you snore, have trouble breathing during the night, or show other symptoms of this sleep disorder, we can help. Your dentist can arrange a convenient at-home sleep test to determine if you have apnea. If so, a custom-made mouthguard can help you breathe easily throughout the night. You’ll get better rest and feel better too.
