Heal Painful Jaw Problems With TMJ Treatment in Rockport

When your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are working properly, you’ll never even know they are there. If you have a TMJ disorder, though, you’ll be acutely aware of them. That’s because even simple movements like yawning and chewing food will cause pain. Fortunately, we can relieve your pain with TMJ treatment in Rockport.

Our treatment will:

  • Enable you to use your jaw without discomfort
  • Keep pain from spreading from your jaw to your neck, shoulders, and other areas
  • Prevent you from clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth, two habits that can damage tooth enamel
  • Reduce the frequency of headaches, earaches, and other associated symptoms

If you suffer from chronic jaw pain or other TMJ symptoms, call us today at 361-209-8609. Common symptoms of a TMJ disorder include lockjaw, frequent headaches, and facial swelling, especially near the jaw.

Eliminate Problematic Behaviors With a Custom Mouthguard

Though no one knows exactly what causes TMJ disorders, numerous factors can worsen your discomfort. Two of the most common are teeth grinding (bruxism) and jaw clenching. Since these behaviors often occur during sleep, you may not even be aware of them. If you typically awaken with a sore jaw, you may want to have our team check you out. Your dentist will also carefully examine your teeth for signs of grinding-related damage during every dental exam.

While we can provide the restorative dental care you need to repair that damage, we’d rather help you prevent it in the first place. To stop this problematic habit, we can fit you for a custom oral appliance that you wear like a mouthguard. It will:

  • Offer a more comfortable fit than a store-bought mouthguard
  • Stop you from damaging your tooth enamel by preventing teeth grinding
  • Keep your jaw in a relaxed position while you sleep so you can get a good night’s rest
  • Relieve pressure on your jaw so it has a chance to naturally heal

Feel better soon with our TMJ treatment in Rockport. Call Sabal Dental at 361-209-8609 or schedule online. We’re happy to help!

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 consult your individual insurance company to determine what will be covered and how much your portion will be. You’re constantly welcome to use third-party funding through CareCredit to assist with your financial investment.

Is TMJ treatment expensive?

While we will not know the precise expense of your treatment until we’ve had the opportunity to examine your jaw and take a set of images, the TMJ treatment you get from us must be less expensive than more invasive forms of treatment such as surgery. We’ll make certain you know your cost before we proceed with any TMJ treatment.

Does TMJ treatment work?

Our TMJ treatment has been able to allow many patients to minimize their jaw pain and inflammation. Our treatment uses a custom-fit oral device that you wear while sleeping. It will move your lower jaw forward a bit to minimize stress on your TMJ. The outcome will be less jaw pain, lowered stress in your neck and shoulders, and the elimination of harmful teeth grinding.
