Breaking Down TMJ & TMD

The TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is the hinge-like joint that connects your jawbone to your skull. TMJ disorder (TMD) is a condition that arises when there’s a problem with this joint. TMJ and TMD can cause significant discomfort in your jaw, leading to difficulty opening and closing your mouth and even pain in the neck, shoulders, and head. We’ll help you break down the causes of your TMJ disorder, develop a personalized treatment plan, and restore your jaw’s proper function, all in a friendly and relaxed environment.

Common Symptoms of TMJ Disorder

Although the jaw joint is small, it can have a strong impact on your overall health when problems come about. With the amount of use our jaws get everyday, symptoms can quickly spread and get out of hand if not resolved as soon as possible. Here are a few TMJ disorder symptoms to look out for:

  • Persistent jaw pain
  • Popping or clicking when opening your mouth
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Frequent ear, neck, or headaches
  • Facial pain
  • Changes in how your upper and lower jaw fit together
  • Locking of the jaw

We understand the discomfort and frustration that comes with TMJ pain. That’s why our team of specialists offers comprehensive TMJ treatment to help relieve your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Nightguards for More Restful Sleep

Do you find yourself waking up with sore jaw muscles or feeling tension in your temples? If so, you may be suffering from bruxism, or habitual nighttime teeth grinding and clenching. While occasional teeth grinding is common, frequent grinding and clenching can contribute to TMJ disorder pain. It may even wear down tooth enamel, requiring restorative dentistry work down the line.

Luckily, custom dental nightguards can be the perfect solution to alleviate TMJ pain. Unlike readymade alternatives, dental nightguards are customized to fit your unique bite and provide superior comfort and protection. By wearing a dental nightguard while you sleep, you can prevent further jaw pain and tooth damage caused by bruxism.
