Improve The Health Of Your Jaw
TMD, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is characterized by the dysfunction of the jaw joint and the surrounding muscles and connective tissues. For a proper diagnosis, you should visit our dentists. If you do have a jaw disorder, we can provide relief from many issues, including:
- Jaw pain
- Neck pain
- Facial pain
- Popping or clicking jaw
Prevent Teeth Grinding And Other Jaw Issues
If you suffer from TMD or involuntarily grind your teeth while working or sleeping, we can create a custom mouthguard for you that stops the grinding or clenching and protects your teeth from injury! To ensure your mouthguard fits just right, we will take precise impressions of the inside of your mouth before having it made!
Because headaches and migraines can be caused by TMD, these same mouthguards or splints can also be used to relieve your pain!
In some cases, another option we provide for treating headaches is a Botox injection, which targets particular muscles in the face to help them relax, alleviating the pain.
