If you grind your teeth, you may have noticed it can damage your tooth enamel, even causing chips and cracks that may need restorative repair. Worse, it can result in unseen damage like a TMJ disorder. With this disorder, your temporomandibular joints become inflamed, causing painful symptoms such as chronic headaches and an aching jaw. We can ease pressure on your jaw with TMJ treatment in Calallen Corpus Christi, giving it a chance to heal.

Our treatment will:

  • Help you regain full range of motion with your jaw so you can easily open and close your mouth
  • Relieve painful symptoms like earaches and headaches
  • Make it easier for you to get a good night’s rest
  • Stop jaw clenching and teeth grinding, two habits that put pressure on your jaw and can damage your teeth
  • Keep TMJ pain from spreading to other areas, like your neck and shoulders

If you think you could have a TMJ disorder, schedule a consultation with one of our dentists by calling 361-317-7226.

Ease Your TMJ Pain With a Custom Mouthguard

Though several factors may contribute to a TMJ disorder, many people who suffer from TMJ pain grind their teeth and/or clench their jaws, two habits often linked to stress. It is often hard to identify these behaviors, as many people do them only during the night while they sleep. Our dentists look for wear and tear and other signs of damage caused by grinding during every dental exam. Some people are tipped off by other members of their household or routinely awaken with a sore jaw.

If we find evidence of these damaging habits, we can fit you for a custom mouthguard. While making dental impressions can be painful for those suffering from TMJ disorders, our digital scanning technology ensures it will be a comfortable process for you.

A custom-fit mouthguard made in-house will:

  • Protect your teeth from damage caused by grinding
  • Move your jaw into a position that helps keep it relaxed
  • Fit more comfortably in your mouth than a mouthguard purchased from a store

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Is TMJ treatment covered by medical insurance?

Depending on the type of insurance policy you have, it may cover a portion of your TMJ treatment. We recommend that you contact your carrier to see if it is covered and what your out-of-pocket cost would be. Keep in mind that we offer third-party financing options through CareCredit, which has zero- and low-interest rates on their payment plans.

Is TMJ treatment expensive?

The exact price of your TMJ treatment can vary, depending on the type of oral appliance that we have made for you. It is best for you to first come in for an examination so that we can determine the proper course of treatment. At that time, we can give you an accurate estimate and answer any questions you have about your TMJ treatment.

Does TMJ treatment work?

Yes, our TMJ treatment has been very effective for a number of our patients who were seeking help with TMJ pain. We normally use a custom-fitted oral appliance that you wear while sleeping. It puts gentle pressure on your lower jaw to move it slightly forward, relieving the tension on your TMJs at the same time. Most of our patients have little to no problem getting used to it.
