TMJ pain can affect many of your daily activities, including eating and sleeping. It can also cause headaches, earaches, muscle pain, and more. Luckily, we can get you out of pain and feeling like yourself again with a custom-made mouthguard.
The pain results when your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) became inflamed and irritated. Since these joints connect your jaw to your skull, you use them every time you open your mouth. A TMJ disorder is often linked to teeth grinding, a habit that also damages your teeth.
A mouthguard prevents you from grinding your teeth and relieves pressure on your jaw so your TMJ can heal. We can also discuss lifestyle changes you can make and can refer you to a specialist if needed.
