Find Relief by Treating Your TMJ Disorder

If your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) has become inflamed, it can trigger many uncomfortable issues. You may experience symptoms such as jaw pain, tension in your neck and shoulders, headaches, or teeth grinding habits. Luckily, we can help. We’ll create a mouthguard you can wear at night. It will:

  • Give your jaw a chance to heal to relieve your disorder
  • Last longer than mouthguards you’d buy in the store
  • Be easy to get used to since it fits you comfortably
  • Act as a barrier to prevent you from grinding teeth or clenching your jaw

We’ll also address damage that has occurred because of your teeth grinding habits. We may recommend restorative treatments such as tooth fillings or dental crowns to repair your smile.

In addition, many patients who have a misaligned bite struggle with TMJ problems. We offer Invisalign orthodontics that will straighten your teeth and get your bite into proper alignment. If you have other symptoms such as snoring, daytime fatigue, and morning headaches, you may be grinding your teeth as a result of sleep apnea. We can help with this condition as well.

Don’t ignore jaw pain! If you need TMJ treatment in Pleasanton, call 830-251-5579 for an appointment. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

The key to relieving TMJ pain is easing pressure on your jaw. To do that, we can make you an appliance that gently moves your jaw into a position that keeps pressure off your jaw. The appliance also keeps you from clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth, two behaviors that trigger TMJ pain.

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.
