Get TMJ Relief From a Comfortable Mouthguard

The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) on either side of your head allow your jaws to open and close for eating, talking, and swallowing. When these joints become irritated or inflamed, the result can be very painful.

If more conservative TMJ treatments such as eating softer foods, applying moist heat or ice, and gentle jaw stretching exercises have not eased your discomfort, the team at Willes Dental can fit you with a custom mouthguard for soothing relief.

The mouthguard fits comfortably over your teeth, putting gentle pressure on your jaw to move it forward. This movement takes pressure off the TMJ to ease your pain, plus it will help eliminate teeth grinding, a cause as well as a symptom of TMJ problems.
