Find Out How Our TMJ Treatment Can Help
We see a lot of patients here that are not aware that they’re grinding their teeth. When I do a first oral exam and if I see signs of grinding or if I see fracture lines, I first of all make the patient aware of what’s going on. In terms of treating that, we have different options. We have different appliances that they can wear. A lot of patients don’t realize … I have patients that come in that have migraines or headaches, and they can’t figure out where it’s coming from. So I try to educate my patient that everything in our mouth is connected. There are muscles that are connected to our jawbones. So when they grind their teeth, it’s all causing pain. So just being aware, our patients being aware of what’s going on and then having a fix or a treatment for it. I kind of go over everything, and I see a lot of patients coming in, I see a lot of change in them because they’re not having as many headaches or they’re not waking up with jaw pain. So, if that’s something that you feel you’re getting, you’re waking up with, your jaw is hurting or you’re getting a lot of headaches, come see us. I can sit down and talk to you and provide you with different options to treat that.
