Feel Better By Wearing A Custom Oral Appliance
Your TMJ is your temporomandibular joint that controls your jaw movement. Given how much you rely on that joint all day long to eat, yawn, speak, and laugh, it’s understandable how distracting and uncomfortable you can become when things with your TMJ go wrong.
You can try to find relief by making small changes to your diet, like eating soft foods that don’t force your jaw to work so hard. You can also rely on cold packs, moist heat, or exercises that stretch your jaw to ease your pain. When you need more than that, you can count on us to create a comfortable, custom mouthguard for relief and healing.
These oral appliances fit over your teeth comfortably, putting your jaw into a forward, more ideal alignment to eliminate stress on your joint. This will give the joint time to heal and let you get on with your life without all those unpleasant symptoms that come with TMJ disorder and teeth grinding.
Rely On Our Advanced Equipment To Protect Your Teeth
We’re proud of our commitment to continued training so that we can provide cutting-edge dental care. That includes investing in high-tech equipment to create oral appliances for our TMJ sufferers. With our modern digital X-rays, for example, we’re able to work more quickly to gather clearer images of your entire mouth using much less radiation than conventional X-rays.
Not only do custom mouthguards relieve TMJ symptoms, but we can also fashion them for the athletes in your family! Wearing a professionally made guard instead of one you find at a sporting goods store will give your teeth and gums superior comfort and protection while playing sports. In turn, this will reduce the risk for painful, costly dental injuries.
