Expert Treatment Will Relieve Tension in Your Jaw

You may know the symptoms all too well – a sore jaw or face, waking up with an unexplained headache, difficulty when eating. If you experience these symptoms, you may have temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain. These joints are situated on either side of your head and make it possible to open and close your mouth. If they become irritated, you’ll feel a great deal of discomfort.

A custom TMJ appliance from Touch of Smiles Dental Care can help you feel much better. This small device will:

  • Gently position your lower jaw slightly forward while you sleep, relieving the tension on your TMJs
  • Allow your jaw joints to begin the healing process so you can feel better
  • Have a comfortable fit, since it’s made using impressions of your teeth

In addition, teeth grinding (or bruxism) is both a cause and a symptom of TMJ problems. If you grind your teeth at night, you may wake up with a throbbing headache and cause damage to your tooth enamel. Our TMJ therapy will also help prevent bruxism, making your headaches less frequent and protecting your teeth against damage that could require restorative dentistry.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment/Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

The key to relieving TMJ pain is easing pressure on your jaw. To do that, we can make you an appliance that gently moves your jaw into a position that keeps pressure off your jaw. The appliance also keeps you from clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth, two behaviors that trigger TMJ pain.

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.

Will insurance pay for my TMJ treatment?

Your insurance may pay for part of your TMJ treatment. We can help determine what your plan will and won’t cover and what your portion of the cost may be. Keep in mind that we offer financing options to help pay for your treatment. We work with CareCredit, LendingClub, and Sunbit, which have low-interest payment plans.
