Stop Dental Damage With an Occlusal Guard

Life with a TMJ disorder is unpleasant. You don’t have the comfortable function of your mouth any longer. You may not think of visiting a dentist for this problem. However, we’re experts in dental anatomy. When you see us for treatment, you benefit from our team’s over 30 years of experience. Plus, we have an in-house prosthodontist, a specialist in treating issues with your oral function.

An oral appliance is one of the more common treatments for a TMJ disorder. We can create an occlusal guard that will:

  • Protect Your Teeth – Wearing your customized occlusal guard provides a barrier between your teeth. While it won’t prevent your grinding habits, it will act like a cushion. As a result, you won’t have to worry about cracking, chipping, or dislodging teeth.
  • Allow Your Jaw to Heal – Wearing the device will alleviate the pressure on your jaw. It allows your jaw to heal since you aren’t bearing down with the same type of force.

While you can find options for night guards at the store, visiting us for treatment means you’ll have a device customized for you. It will fit you better, so it’s comfortable to wear. Plus, it will last longer because it’s made of high-quality materials.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

The key to relieving TMJ pain is easing pressure on your jaw. To do that, we can make you an appliance that gently moves your jaw into a position that keeps pressure off your jaw. The appliance also keeps you from clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth, two behaviors that trigger TMJ pain.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

There is no standard length for TMJ treatment. It depends on many factors, including the severity of your symptoms. Since a mouthguard not only relieves TMJ pain but also prevents damage to teeth caused by grinding, many patients make it a permanent addition to their bedtime routine.

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.
