TMJ disorder is a problem for lots of people and they may never realize it. The problem can be caused by stress, poorly balanced dental restorations, medications, mood, or other factors and lead to all kinds of symptoms such as:
- Chronic headaches and migraines
- Jaw and neck pain
- Ringing in your ears
- Popping and cracking jaw sounds
- Jaw locking open or closed
If your TMJ disorder is caused by night time stress and clenching and grinding, we can help with a custom-made mouthguard. Our TMJ mouthguards are designed to hold your jaw and teeth in a more comfortable, balanced position while also protecting your enamel from the force applied by clenching and grinding.
If you have discovered tiny cracks in your teeth, if your teeth look shorter than they used to, if your jaw makes sounds and pops when you chew or yawn, or if you are suffering from chronic headaches, please give Meyer Family Dentistry a call. We are here to help our patients feel great again!
