Prevent Teeth Grinding With A TMJ Mouthguard
Everyone at our general dentist office wants you to live free from oral pain. We also want you to have a healthy smile. When you grind or clench your teeth, you can damage your smile. At our practice, we can design a night guard that is custom-made for you. This serves as a barrier to stop clenching and grinding, and it can also stop TMJ symptoms, such as:
- Headaches (including migraines) and earaches
- Jaw soreness when you wake up, while you eat, or after eating
- Jaw stiffness
- Feeling unable to fully open or close your mouth
- Clicking or popping when you open or close your mouth
- Face, neck, or upper back pain
- Worn-down enamel
Letting us create a mouthguard for you can prevent long-term damage to your oral health. Leaving this untreated can raise your likelihood of tooth decay, tooth infections, and periodontal problems.
Don’t Let A TMJ Disorder Affect Your Daily Life

If you are one of them, then you already know how it can make routine activities more difficult. A constant headache can make it hard to focus on work or enjoy the time you spend with loved ones. Jaw pain can turn meals into an unpleasant experience.
