Give Your Jaw Expert Care & Stop the Pain

If you experience jaw pain or discomfort, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. The good news is, this pain can be treated. One effective option is the use of a TMJ appliance. It can help alleviate TMJ symptoms and improve your overall well-being.

A TMJ appliance, also known as an occlusal splint or a bite guard, is a custom-made device that fits over your teeth. Typically made of plastic, it is designed to help realign your jaw joint and relieve pressure on the surrounding muscles.

When you wear a TMJ mouthguard, it helps stabilize your jaw joint and prevent clenching or grinding of your teeth. These habits, which often occur in your sleep, are common causes of TMJ pain. With its cushioning effect, the appliance reduces the impact of your bite and allows the muscles in your jaw to relax.

This type of TMJ therapy has several benefits:

  • Pain Relief – A TMJ appliance can help alleviate jaw pain, headaches, and facial discomfort associated with TMJ disorder.
  • Muscle Relaxation – By reducing muscle tension, the appliance promotes relaxation and minimizes jaw clenching and teeth grinding.
  • Protection – The appliance acts as a protective barrier, preventing tooth damage caused by grinding or clenching.
  • Improved Sleep – Wearing a TMJ appliance can help you achieve better sleep quality by reducing teeth grinding during sleep.

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 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 we offer financing options to help pay for your treatment. We work with several third-party finance companies, which offer attractive payment plans.
