A TMJ Appliance Can Work Wonders for Your Jaw
You probably don’t think much about your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) – that is, until they start to hurt. These joints connect your upper jaw to your skull and make it possible to open and close your mouth. When they become irritated – for reasons that are still not fully understood – you can experience a significant amount of pain when eating, talking, or yawning. Your jaw may also pop when chewing or even become locked into place at times.
We don’t take any of these symptoms lightly. That’s why we offer TMJ therapy in the form of a custom-fit appliance. All you have to do is put the appliance in when you go to bed and let it do its work. It will move your lower jaw slightly forward, reducing tension on your TMJs so they can begin to heal. As a bonus, the appliance will also eliminate teeth grinding (which many people do in their sleep without knowledge of it) that could potentially require restorative dentistry to repair.
If a TMJ appliance doesn’t help your symptoms, you can work with Dr. Wallace to explore other treatment options. We’ll do all we can to help you feel better.
