Feel Better Soon With TMJ Therapy
You may be well acquainted with jaw pain, but you may not realize it could be caused by a disorder in your temporomandibular joints (TMJ). These complex joints sit on either side of your head so that you can open and close your jaw. When they become irritated, you can experience a great deal of pain attempting to talk or eat.
Dental Expressions by Dr. Gary Bram provides TMJ pain relief using a custom mouthguard. It will fit comfortably in your mouth, exerting gentle pressure on your jaw to remove tension from your TMJ. You’ll feel better, sleep better, and finally be able to relax.
Researchers aren’t certain of the exact causes of TMJ disorder. However, we know that teeth grinding both contributes to TMJ pain and is a symptom of it. In addition to repositioning your jaw, your new mouthguard will also stop you from grinding your teeth. This will help prevent tooth enamel damage that grinding often causes. Without treatment, a grinding habit can damage your teeth badly enough that restorative care is required!
Teeth grinding also plays a major role in developing migraine and tension headaches. Eliminating teeth grinding can lessen both the frequency and intensity of these kinds of headaches. It’s a winning situation for you all around!
