Feel & Function Better By Eliminating TMJ Symptoms

10 MILLION More than 10 million people in the U.S. have TMJ disorder. Source.
You may be one of the many individuals dealing with TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. This painful condition causes jaw pain, headaches, and other unpleasant symptoms. Many people who have TMJ dysfunction also grind their teeth, a habit that can cause serious dental damage.

On a positive note, effective treatment options are available to help alleviate your symptoms and restore your quality of life:

  • TMJ Appliance – One of the key treatments for TMJ is a custom TMJ appliance, also known as an oral splint or night guard. This specialized appliance is custom-made to fit your teeth and is worn while you sleep. It repositions your jaw and relieves stress on the TMJ. By wearing the appliance consistently, you can experience a significant reduction in jaw pain, headaches, and teeth grinding.
  • Botox® – Botox is a well-known cosmetic treatment that can also be an effective solution for TMJ disorder. When injected into the jaw muscles, Botox limits excessive contraction of the jaw muscles and reduces their ability to exert excessive force on the TMJ. This lessens pain, reduces muscle tension, and improves jaw mobility. Botox treatment for TMJ is a safe and minimally invasive option that can provide long-lasting relief.

Our team offers both custom TMJ appliances and Botox treatment, so we can provide you with personalized care and find the best solution for your specific needs. Our dentists look for signs of teeth grinding during your dental cleanings and exams. Evidence of grinding can signal that you may benefit from treatment.
