Enjoy Life Again With Customized TMJ Therapy

They may be small, but the joints just below your ears are incredibly important to your everyday life. They’re the hinges that allow you to open and close your mouth. You rely on them so much, you hardly give them a second thought. All day long, your temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is hard at work so you can eat, speak, and laugh comfortably. It isn’t until you suffer the significant pain of a TMJ disorder, or TMD, that you realize just how much these tiny joints can impact your quality of life.

The good news is, we can help you enjoy your life pain-free again with a custom oral appliance. With precise measurements, we’ll make sure your mouthguard fits comfortably. When you wear it each night, this custom device will:

  • Gently push your lower jaw forward
  • Keep you from grinding your teeth and clenching your jaw
  • Relieve the pressure you’ve been putting on your jaw joints
  • Relax the muscles in your face, neck, and shoulders
  • Reduce the risk of dental damage that would require restorative treatment

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Will insurance pay for my TMJ treatment?

Your insurance may pay for part of your TMJ treatment. We can help determine what your plan will and won’t cover and what your portion of the cost may be. Keep in mind that you can choose third-party financing through CareCredit, which offers low-interest payment options, to help pay for your treatment.

What are the signs of a TMJ disorder?

Signs of a TMJ disorder may include jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds when chewing, difficulty opening the mouth completely, facial pain, headaches, and ear pain or ringing. Some people may also experience neck and shoulder pain or toothaches unrelated to dental problems. Also, your jaw may feel locked or stuck. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to visit our practice for help.

Is TMJ causing my headaches?

It’s possible, yes. Inflammation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can lead to pain in the surrounding muscles of the head and neck, which can be misinterpreted as migraines. By wearing a mouthguard, you can alleviate the pain caused by TMJ inflammation and potentially experience relief from headaches.
