Feel Better With Expert Treatment

Most people don’t think about their temporomandibular joints (TMJs) until they begin to hurt. These complex joints sit on either side of your head and connect your jaw to your skull. They make it possible to open and close your mouth when eating, talking, yawning, and even singing.

Researchers aren’t certain why the TMJs can become inflamed and irritated, but when they do, they can put you in quite a bit of pain. The team at Relax Dental can help, however:

  • We can take digital impressions (without the goopy mess of traditional impressions) and have our lab partner create a TMJ appliance for you.
  • You’ll wear it while sleeping, and it will move your lower jaw slightly forward to reduce tension on your jaw joints.
  • This slight movement is enough to allow your TMJs to begin the healing process and help you start feeling better.
  • The appliance will also prevent teeth grinding, which can cause headaches and damage your tooth enamel that requires restorative dentistry to repair.

If you need another form of TMJ treatment, Dr. Wallace can work one-on-one with you to explore other options. Our goal is to get you to the point where you can experience normal jaw function every day without pain.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

TMJ problems typically won’t go away without treatment. TMJ pain is usually caused when the joints in your jaw become inflamed. This commonly occurs because of two habits that put your jaw under pressure: clenching and teeth grinding. We can make a custom mouthguard for you that will stop these behaviors so that your jaw can heal.

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 a portion of the cost of your TMJ treatment. We recommend you check with your carrier to determine what they will and won’t cover. We’ll work with your insurance to maximize your benefits and ensure that your out-of-pocket cost is minimal. Our team wants you to get the help you need to feel better.
