Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with what TMJ is. If you’re in pain and seeking a solution, you’re in the right place. And you’re not alone – approximately 10 million Americans suffer from TMJ pain.
Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect your jaw to your skull and are located on both sides of your head. These are complex joints that can become quite irritated and painful. No one has proven with certainty what causes TMJ pain.
What is certain, however, is that our custom mouthguard will work to relieve stress on your TMJ, so that both it and you can relax. You’ll wear the appliance while you sleep, and it will gently push your lower jaw forward to relieve pressure on your TMJ. You’ll feel better and rest better.
Plus, if you’re a teeth grinder (like many people are without knowing it), the mouthguard will prevent you from grinding your teeth. The appliance will protect your tooth enamel against damage and help you avoid needing restorative dentistry to repair it.
In addition, with our treatment you may experience fewer headaches. Research has shown that teeth grinding causes both tension headaches and migraines, so ending it may likely prevent many unexplained headaches as well.
