Get Relief From Your TMJ Pain & Feel Like Yourself Again

A TMJ disorder can happen for many reasons. Arthritis, teeth-grinding habits, or injury to your mouth can trigger it. Whatever the cause, your dentists can provide treatment that stops your pain. First, we’ll do an exam and take digital X-rays. We want to understand your complete oral health before recommending any solution. Based on our findings, we may suggest:

  • Custom Oral Appliance – We can make a custom bite guard that prevents you from clenching or grinding your teeth. This gives your jaw a chance to heal. The mouthguard will fit you perfectly and last longer than any store-bought product.
  • Botox® Treatments – Another method of relief is through Botox. We’ll inject this FDA-approved treatment in strategic places on your jaw. It relieves your pain and encourages natural mouth movement.

Restorative dental care might also be part of your treatment. It’s especially important if grinding has damaged your teeth. We may also recommend orthodontic solutions, since misaligned teeth can cause a TMJ problem. Fortunately, we have many solutions to get your teeth in the correct alignment. Your dentist will discuss which is suitable for you.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

TMJ treatment has helped many patients enjoy everyday activities like talking, eating, and laughing without pain. The key to successful TMJ therapy is finding the best treatment method for you. We offer several ways to treat TMJ pain, including a custom mouthguard, orthodontics, restorations, and Botox®. We’ll determine which one will work best for you.

Is TMJ causing my headaches?

It’s possible, yes. Inflammation of the temporomandibular joints (TMJs) 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.

What are the signs of a TMJ disorder?

Signs of a TMJ disorder may include jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds when chewing, difficulty opening the mouth completely, facial pain, headaches, and ear pain or ringing. Some people may also experience neck and shoulder pain or toothaches unrelated to dental problems. Also, your jaw may feel locked or stuck. If you experience any of these symptoms, visiting our practice for help is important.
