Feel Better by Putting an End to TMJ Symptoms

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are located below your ear near your jawline. They give you the ability to eat, talk, laugh, chew, and bite. A TMJ disorder happens when these joints becomes inflamed or irritated. While it’s hard to determine an exact cause, it’s often the result of teeth grinding, stress, bite misalignment, or trauma to the jaw.

We want to give you the relief you need so you don’t have to live with discomfort any longer. Your dentist will create a custom-fit mouthguard that will:

  • Put an end to the symptoms of the disorder so your jaw can heal
  • Fit comfortably in your mouth so you can sleep
  • Act as a barrier between your teeth so you don’t damage your enamel
  • Relax the tension in your jaw, neck, and shoulders

If you show signs of cracked or chipped teeth, we can repair your smile with either restorative or cosmetic procedures, depending on the level of damage. If you are dealing with alignment issues, we may recommend an orthodontic solution such as Invisalign or braces. A misaligned bite is a possible cause of a TMJ disorder.
