TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint) Pain
These symptoms often occur when the occlusion (bite) is incorrect. It often appears in patients with grinding or clenching habits, especially in times of abnormal stress. This pain can often be alleviated with special night guards that are worn and prevent the teeth from touching thereby interrupting the clenching-pain cycle.
Snoring and pain from TMJ can greatly affect your quality of life, and the ones around you. If you or a loved one suffer from either of these conditions, please call us so we can help alleviate the pain and the stress it causes. These appliances are worn over the teeth at night and direct the jaw position forward. This further opens the patient’s airway thereby preventing the vibration of the soft palate which we know as “snoring.” If you or a loved one suffers from snoring, please contact us. Snoring can interrupt sleep for both you and the ones around you.
