TMJ pain is concentrated in your jaw. That makes it difficult to avoid, as you use your jaw for eating, speaking, and many other everyday activities. Fortunately, we can relieve your discomfort!
Like many dentists, we can provide you with a custom-made nightguard. This relieves pressure on your jaw and prevents you from clenching and grinding, two behaviors often found in patients who suffer from TMJ dysfunction.
Unlike most other dentists, we add two more aspects of treatment:
- laser therapy, to provide quicker pain relief
- patient coaching, to address the underlying issues of TMJ disorders, often including stress
