Relieve Tension on Your Jaw With a Mouthguard So It Can Heal

Your TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, allows you to open and close your mouth. It’s no wonder why you would experience some pretty debilitating symptoms if anything causes your jaw to malfunction. Whether it’s a teeth grinding habit, chronic stress, or an injury, we can help you figure out the underlying cause of your TMJ disorder and end the problems associated with it.

The key is to get your jaw into a better position so it can heal naturally. This is exactly what a custom mouthguard will do! The mouthguard is made using precise measurements of your mouth. It will:

  • Fit comfortably while you sleep
  • Bring your jaw forward and prevent you from clenching your upper and lower teeth together
  • Relieve tension on your TMJ so they can heal
  • Prevent damage to tooth enamel caused by grinding

You’ll soon notice the uncomfortable symptoms you’re used to start to dissipate, including ticking or popping sounds in your jaw, pain or difficulty when chewing your food, and facial swelling or tenderness.

Another consequence of jaw disorders and teeth grinding is damage to your tooth enamel. If you have chipped, cracked, or worn-down teeth, we can provide restorative dental treatment to fix your smile and improve your oral health moving forward.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment

Does TMJ treatment work?

Most individuals who experience TMJ disorder discover relief with a personalized mouthguard, the TMJ therapy we use most. Typically worn during the night, a mouthguard relieves the pressure on your jaw and prevents you from grinding your teeth. A grinding habit not only adds to TMJ discomfort, but it can also harm your tooth enamel.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

There is no standard length of time for TMJ therapy. It depends on numerous factors, such as the seriousness of your symptoms. Considering that a mouthguard not only eliminates TMJ pain but also prevents damage to teeth caused by grinding, many patients make it a permanent addition to their bedtime regimen.

Will insurance pay for TMJ treatment?

While a customized TMJ mouthguard might be covered under a dental or medical insurance plan, not all plans cover them. Our team will aid you in finding out if your plan offers coverage and will help you maximize your benefits. We will also coordinate with you to find the right payment option if it does not cover treatment.
