A Custom Night Guard Can Help With TMJ Issues & Teeth Grinding
A customized mouthguard can be worn to correct TMJ issues. Dr. Martin will listen to your concerns and examine your mouth. If he believes a mouthguard can help, he’ll create a painless digital impression of your mouth so a custom mouthguard can be made specifically for your smile. It will be designed to comfortably fit right over your teeth to prevent grinding and help your jaw muscles relax.
We urge you to avoid mouthguards found at drugstores or supermarkets. These may promise to be easily customizable, but they are often ineffective and a waste of time and money. That’s why you should come see us for your TMJ mouthguard. We know what’s best for your smile, and if you’re in pain, we want to help you solve the problem ASAP.
Discover the Causes Behind TMJ Pain
You have two jaw joints called temporomandibular joints, also known as TMJ. Sometimes, you may experience discomfort while chewing and hear clicking or popping sounds. This could be the result of a TMJ disorder, or TMD. Another cause of your jaw pain or headaches could be due to an irregular bite, such as an underbite or overbite.
If you grind your teeth during the day, it’s causing damage to your tooth enamel and may be making your teeth sensitive to hot and cold food and drinks. You may also be grinding your teeth at night without knowing it, leading to major stress on your jaw and damage to your teeth that could require restorative dentistry to correct.
You can avoid these problems for good with our custom mouthguards. Call us today for TMJ treatment in Punta Gorda: 941-585-0424.
