Relieve Jaw Tension With a Custom Bite Guard

Symptoms of a TMJ disorder can vary. However, you may notice chronic pain in your jaw, face, and neck areas. You may hear clicking or popping sounds when you bite into food or open your mouth. You might even experience tooth sensitivity due to the damage of teeth grinding. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you’ll want to come in for an appointment.

The most common treatment for a TMJ disorder is a custom-fitted bite guard. Your dentist can create a personalized one for you that fits the unique contours of your teeth and jaw. You’ll experience many benefits:

  • Personalized Comfort – Unlike one-size-fits-all options, a custom bite guard will fit you perfectly. This ensures you are more likely to wear the oral appliance and enjoy the benefits that come with it. You’ll wear it while you sleep and barely recognize you have it in your mouth.
  • Long-Lasting – A bite guard you receive at our practice is going to last longer than others you purchase online or in the store. You’ll enjoy greater protection and comfort as well as a reduction in TMJ pain and other symptoms.
  • Enhanced Relaxation – This type of custom bite guard will help relieve the tension in your jaw. This helps the muscles in your jaw, neck, and shoulders relax. You may notice greater comfort by wearig this oral appliance faithfully.
  • Protected Dental Health – TMJ dysfunction can lead to grinding, clenching, and other harmful dental habits. This can take a toll on the health and function of your teeth. A custom bite guard shields your teeth from damage.
