Improve Your Life With TMJ Therapy

You probably don’t pay much attention to your temporomandibular joints (TMJs), at least not until they begin to cause you problems. These joints make it possible to open and close your jaw so you can perform everyday activities like talking and eating. If your TMJs become irritated, they can produce a great deal of pain.

Although researchers aren’t sure of the exact causes of TMJ disorder, they know that both teeth grinding and clenching can make the problem worse. That’s why our treatment is designed to help you in two ways. You’ll wear a custom-fitted TMJ appliance while you sleep. It will:

  • Move your lower jaw slightly forward to relieve tension on your jaw joints so they can begin to heal
  • Fit easily into your bedtime routine and be barely noticeable when you wear it
  • Keep your teeth apart to prevent teeth grinding and cushion your jaw when you clench

Since grinding (also known as bruxism) is a major cause of headaches, you may also experience fewer of them. In addition, bruxism can damage your tooth enamel, so you’ll avoid problems like increased risk for tooth decay and sensitivity to heat and cold.
