Say Goodbye to TMJ Symptoms
If your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) become irritated or inflamed, they can cause you a great deal of pain. These complex joints make it possible to open and close our mouths for everyday activities like talking, eating, laughing, and even singing. Researchers aren’t certain of all the causes of TMJ irritation, although we know that a custom oral appliance will help relieve the symptoms.
Here’s how our TMJ therapy works:
- Our professionally made device will fit comfortably in your mouth while you sleep.
- It will exert gentle pressure to move your lower jaw slightly forward.
- This action relieves tension on your jaw joints and reduces your discomfort.
- Our patients find the device easy to get used to, and most report no problems using it.
Another benefit of our TMJ appliance is that it will help keep your teeth apart so that you don’t grind them in your sleep, which many people do without knowing it. Less teeth grinding means less potential damage to your tooth enamel, which would require restorative dentistry to repair. So, not only will your jaw feel better, but you’ll also protect your pearly whites against damage!
