    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 which 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.
