Find Out How Our TMJ Treatment Can Help
Chronic jaw pain is extremely important to talk about. A lot of us are under stress, and I’m guilty of it. I’m under the impression that about 85 percent of us at night are grinding or clenching, or some combination of the two. Some of us do it during the day. Sometimes I’m working and I’m biting down really, really hard. What that can do is just overwork those muscles that are the closing muscles of our jaw, and that’s just going to put a lot more stress on the joint.
Here at Sabal Dental, we offer a wide range of treatment for that. We offer occlusal guards that open up that bite, make sure they’re not clenching as hard. And a more novel approach is Botox®. We’re able to offer Botox to just retrain those muscles and not have them contract as hard and be as damaging to the joint.
