Take The Pain Away With An Easy Mouthguard

Dr. Brian McNulty or Dr. Luis Dancausse will take a look at your mouth’s condition to determine if you’re dealing with TMJ or teeth grinding issues. If you are, a customized mouthguard may solve all of your problems.

This mouthguard will be made in a lab to fit comfortably in your mouth and relieve tension in your face and jaw. That kind of muscular stress can also cause discomfort in your neck, head, and shoulders. Your mouthguard will also prevent teeth grinding, which wears down your teeth and makes them sensitive and vulnerable to decay and fractures.

Understand Why You’re Dealing With TMJ Or Teeth Grinding Issues

“TMJ” actually refers to your jaw joints, or temporomandibular joints. When stress is placed on these joints, it leads to temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMD. TMD is what causes the discomfort you’re experiencing, as well as teeth grinding at night. Involuntarily teeth grinding while you sleep is a serious condition known as “bruxism.” Bruxism can cause dental pain and possibly require restorative dentistry.

The causes of TMD and teeth grinding are often difficult to pinpoint. Arthritis and injuries have been known to lead to both. Whatever the cause of your condition, our doctors have solutions to help relieve the pain.

Call 704-766-8662 or use our online form to schedule your consultation at our Charlotte, NC dentist office. We’ll end your TMJ issues so you can enjoy pain-free days again.
