Stop Teeth Grinding and Start Feeling Better

You are able to open and close your mouth because of your temporomandibular joints (TMJ), which are located on each side of your jaw. When those joints are in a bad position, they can affect how your bite fits together and put strain on your teeth and nearby muscles in your face and neck.

This can have a number of detrimental effects, such as migraines and pain in your jaw, face, neck, shoulders, and upper back. To alleviate these symptoms, you can follow these steps:

  • Talk to One of Our Doctors – Let us examine and evaluate the condition of your teeth and jaw.
  • Make an Impression – By doing this, we can custom design a bite guard for you.
  • Wear Your Appliance – When you receive your bite guard, you can wear it while you sleep to prevent nighttime clenching and grinding.

If your teeth have been damaged by grinding, we offer restorative services to repair them. Keep coming back to our general dental practice to improve and maintain your healthy smile.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment/Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

TMJ problems typically won’t go away without treatment. TMJ pain is usually caused when the joints in your jaw become inflamed. This commonly occurs because of two habits that put your jaw under pressure: clenching and teeth grinding. We can make a custom mouthguard for you that will stop these behaviors so that your jaw can heal.

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.

Will insurance pay for my TMJ treatment?

Your insurance may pay for a portion of the cost of your TMJ treatment. We recommend you check with your carrier to determine what they will and won’t cover. We’ll work with your insurance to maximize your benefits and ensure that your out-of-pocket cost is minimal. Our team wants you to get the help you need to feel better.

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.
