Get More Information on Our Approach to TMJ Treatment
TMJ disorder is a problem in the jaw joint, which is right in front of your ear there. Typically, it’s caused by clinching or grinding, and when we see a patient that has that and we believe that’s where it’s coming from, we might get some images to check the jaw joint itself. As long as everything looks okay there, it’s typically related to clinching or grinding your teeth, or bruxing, and the first line of treatment for that is making a night guard. We take some molds of your teeth, make some custom models of your mouth, and then the lab fabricates an appliance that’s worn to help with that.
