Find Relief With a Custom Mouthguard

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect your jaw to your skull. When they become inflamed and irritated, the result is a TMJ disorder (TMD). In addition to jaw pain, you may experience other unpleasant symptoms like headaches. A mouthguard can offer you a convenient solution that will ease your pain and other TMJ symptoms. While you can buy a mouthguard in the store, it won’t offer you the same relief as our custom-fit mouthguards. Our mouthguards will:

  • Use impressions of your teeth and other measurements to ensure a perfect fit
  • Gently shift your jaw into a position that relieves stress on your TMJ
  • Stop you from clenching and grinding your teeth while you sleep
  • Prevent dental damage caused by grinding

With our help, you’ll be back to your old self in no time!

Identify Common TMD Symptoms & Get Treatment

A painful jaw is the most obvious symptom of a TMD. However, there are others. If you’re experiencing any of them, it’s best to see our dentists right away. They can determine if you have a TMD and identify underlying complications like teeth grinding. Common TMD symptoms include:

  • Swelling on one side of your face, especially around your jaw
  • Popping or clicking noise when you open and close your mouth
  • Chronic unexplained headaches and earaches
  • Difficulty opening and closing your mouth

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

How long does TMJ treatment last?

This is going to vary from person to person. Some patients notice improvements as soon as they get their mouthguards. Other patients need a few weeks or months to adjust. The important thing is that you get long-term relief from the jaw pain, headaches, and other symptoms of a TMJ disorder.

Is TMJ treatment covered by insurance?

As with many oral care treatments, this depends on your plan and your provider. Some policies cover a portion of this care. Regardless, we want to help you get relief within your budget. We offer a variety of payment options including in-house financing and financing through CareCredit. We will work with you to find the best option for you.

Can TMJ go away without treatment?

TMJ problems typically don’t go away on their own. In the short term, you will likely continue having problems with teeth grinding, headaches, jaw pain, and other common symptoms of TMJ disorders. In the long term, grinding can cause serious damage to your teeth, such as breaks and cracks. This raises your risk of cavities, infection, and even tooth loss over time.
