Figure Out What Is Causing Your Jaw Disorder
The TMJ is your temporomandibular joint that 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, which is exactly what a custom mouthguard will do! We take precise measurements of your mouth so it will fit comfortably while you sleep, bringing your jaw forward and preventing you from clenching your upper and lower teeth together.
You’ll soon notice the uncomfortable symptoms you’re used to start to dissipate, like:
- Chronic pain in your jaw
- Clicking or popping sounds in your jaw
- Pain or difficulty when chewing your food
- Frequent locking of your jaw
- Facial swelling or tenderness
- Pain in your neck, ears, head, or shoulders
- Headaches or migraines that make it hard to concentrate
Fix Damaged Tooth Enamel For A Healthier Smile
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.
