Discover Customized Solutions for Your Unique TMJ Needs

TMJ disorders occur when the jaw joints become misaligned, inflamed, or overworked. This can happen as a result of teeth grinding (bruxism), jaw clenching, injury, or arthritis. You may notice symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, popping or clicking when you open or close your jaw, and increased tooth sensitivity.

Our practice typically recommends a night guard, since many patients grind or clench their teeth while they sleep. Your dentist may also recommend an alternative or additional treatments based on the root cause of your disorder. It could include clear aligner orthodontics to correct a misaligned bite or referral to a specialist for severe cases.

However, a custom night guard offers many benefits:

  • Pain Relief – A night guard will relieve the pressure on your jaw. It prevents you from unconsciously grinding your teeth and clenching your jaw, allowing the area to heal.
  • Easy to Wear – Your bite guard is made using impressions of your teeth taken with our digital scanner. You’ll enjoy a superior and more comfortable fit in comparison to any options you’ll find in the store.
  • Less Wear and Tear – The night guard creates a cushion between your teeth so you don’t experience as much dental damage. You’ll save money on dental care by avoiding chipping, cracking, or even breaking a tooth.

Whatever treatment is ideal for you, you can trust that our team ensures you understand all of your options. We like to educate our patients, not pressure you into a decision. You’ll know you are making the right choice for your unique smile needs.
