A common way to treat TMJ disorder is by using oral appliances. At our practice, we provide customized oral appliances, meaning that you receive treatment that is made just for you. There are many different types of oral appliances that can be used to treat your TMJ, including:
Also called bite guards, oral splints are plastic guards that fit over your lower or upper teeth. They are made to rest between your arches and help relax your facial muscles and prevent them from clenching.
These oral appliances are custom made to fit snugly around your teeth. Worn while you sleep, night guards protect your teeth from grinding and provide a cushion between your arches if you clench your jaw.
Worn throughout the day, mouth guards work similarly to night guards. They provide protection against jaw clenching and teeth grinding while you are awake and can thus lessen the painful side effects.
When you visit our practice to be treated for TMJ, our dentist will evaluate your personal condition to determine which oral appliance will be most beneficial for you. We want to help restore your comfort. For more information, we invite you to visit or call our office today.
