Tooth Grinding & Jaw Pain
If you are experiencing pain associated with your jaw joint, you may be suffering from TMD. TMD, or temporomandibular dysfunction, is caused by stress or injury to the jaw joint. However, this dysfunction can manifest in a variety of ways. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may be suffering from TMD.
- jaw pain
- neck pain
- popping or clicking of the jaw
- unexplained headaches or migraines
- shoulder or upper back pain
- facial pain
Please contact one of our convenient area locations if you are experiencing these symptoms. We can help you get the treatment you need to feel better.
Relieve the Pain
I grind my teeth at night. Is that making my jaw ache?
Very possibly. Teeth grinding or clenching, known as bruxism, is a common neurological affliction and is associated with TMJ (temporomandibular joint) pain. In addition to jaw pain, grinding or clenching can also cause major damage to your teeth. The excess pressure can wear down or even break your posterior teeth. Bruxism is common in children (who often grow out of it) but can also persist in adults and people of all ages.
What can the team at Sunrise Dental do to help?
The team at Sunrise Dental can help you get the treatment you need to feel better. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort due to TMJ or bruxism issues, we can help. We can create a mouthguard designed to be worn at night. This mouthguard temporarily adjusts the position of the jaw and alleviates pressure on the jaw joint. It also protects the teeth from unnecessary pressure and damage due to grinding or clenching. Our mouthguards are a great way to manage your discomfort and let you lead a normal life.
We craft these mouthguards by first taking impressions of your mouth. We then send off the impressions to a lab for the mouthguard to be created. At your next appointment, we can then make sure the mouthguard fits properly and adjusts the position of your jaw in a comfortable way. These custom-designed guards are made to fit comfortably and help alleviate your discomfort.
