Stop Teeth Grinding With an Easy Oral Appliance

There are many signs of a TMJ disorder. You may hear popping sounds when you chew, experience frequent headaches, or deal with chronic jaw pain. You may also struggle with tooth sensitivity as a result of grinding or clenching. Many people unknowingly grind their teeth, especially at night, making TMJ problems worse. Dr. Wong can fit you for a customized oral appliance to protect your teeth and alleviate TMJ-related discomfort. You’ll wake up refreshed and pain-free.

You’ll experience numerous benefits of using an appliance:

  • Protect Your Teeth – A custom night guard provides a protective barrier, to prevent teeth grinding and minimize wear and tear.
  • Reduce Pain – Relieve jaw pain, headaches, and facial discomfort caused by teeth grinding and clenching.
  • Improve Your Sleep Quality – Night guards promote better sleep by fixing your disruptive grinding habits.

We’ll take digital scans of your teeth to get your appliance created. A trusted outside lab will make the device. You’ll return to our office to pick it up. With a custom fit, you’ll barely notice it in your mouth while you sleep. Relieving the pressure on your jaw and TMJs gives them a chance to heal.

Dr. Wong may also recommend orthodontics. A TMJ disorder may be an indicator that your teeth are misaligned. He’ll discuss which of our numerous orthodontic options are a good fit for your smile needs.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

How long does TMJ treatment take?

There is no standard length for TMJ treatment. It depends on many factors, including the severity of your symptoms. Since a mouthguard not only relieves TMJ pain but also prevents damage to teeth caused by grinding, many patients make it a permanent addition to their bedtime routine.

What are the signs of a TMJ disorder?

Signs of a TMJ disorder may include jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds when chewing, difficulty opening the mouth completely, facial pain, headaches, and ear pain or ringing. Some people may also experience neck and shoulder pain or toothaches unrelated to dental problems. Also, your jaw may feel locked or stuck. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to visit our practice for help.

Is TMJ causing my headaches?

It’s possible, yes. Inflammation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can lead to pain in the surrounding muscles of the head and neck, which can be misinterpreted as migraines. By wearing a mouthguard, you can alleviate the pain caused by TMJ inflammation and potentially experience relief from headaches.
