Get a TMJ Mouthguard to Stop Teeth Grinding

We understand that you don’t want to be in pain, and everyone in our office wants to prevent oral pain. We believe you deserve a healthy smile, too. However, clenching and grinding your teeth can affect your oral health and how sore your jaw feels throughout the day. These habits are often associated with a TMJ disorder, inflammation of your jaw joints that can cause considerable discomfort.

By creating a custom-designed night guard for you, we can give you a way to stop clenching and grinding. The night guard will:

  • Ease pressure on your jaw so it can heal
  • Fit comfortably so you won’t mind wearing it
  • Stop you from grinding your teeth and clenching your jaw while you sleep
  • Help you get a better night’s rest and wake up with a sore jaw

Our night guards prevent long-term damage to your oral health by creating a barrier between your upper and lower teeth. Ignoring TMJ problems can make you more likely to have tooth decay, tooth infections, and periodontal problems. You’ll also get relief from TMJ symptoms like:

  • Headaches (including migraines)
  • Earaches
  • Stiff jaw
  • Being unable to completely open or close your mouth
  • Clicking or popping when you open or close your mouth
  • Pain in your face, neck, or upper back

Our TMJ treatment in Harlingen can stop your suffering. Call 956-275-7596 to schedule an appointment at Sabal Dental. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Is TMJ treatment covered by medical insurance?

Your TMJ treatment might be covered in part by medical insurance, depending on the terms of your policy. We urge you to contact your individual insurer to determine what will be covered and just how much your part will be, and we can offer you an estimate of benefits too. You’re welcome to utilize third-party financing through CareCredit to assist with your care.

Is TMJ treatment expensive?

While we won’t know the precise expense of your treatment until we’ve had the opportunity to analyze your jaw and take a set of images, the TMJ treatment you get from us will be less costly than more invasive kinds of treatment such as surgical treatment. We’ll make certain you know your expense prior to proceeding with any TMJ treatment.

Does TMJ treatment work?

Our TMJ treatment has actually been able to help numerous patients with their jaw discomfort and inflammation. Our treatment generally focuses on utilizing a custom-fit oral appliance that you wear while sleeping. It prevents teeth from touching so they don’t grind together. It also repositions your jaw for improved comfort and healing.
