Jaw pain and soreness. Headaches or migraines. Clenching or grinding your teeth. These chronic conditions could all be signs of a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Your TM joints are the hinges that allow you to open and close your mouth. You can’t eat or speak without them. Many factors can cause a disorder of your TMJ. Your teeth could be misaligned causing you to grind your teeth and leading to unnecessary stress on your jaw joints. The issue could also be found at the source: the joint itself. Whatever the cause, we offer custom TMJ treatment in Columbus | Hilliard | Springfield | Powell, OH to ensure you find the relief you need.
Do You Have a TMJ Disorder?
TMJ Disorder Solutions
Our team at Blank Dental Group understands that Temporomandibular disorders (TMD or TMJ) affect the jaw joint and can cause discomfort to immobility. Leveraging extensive clinical experience, advanced training, and innovative approaches, we evaluate each patient to identify the best solution. Some common TMJ treatment solutions include the following:
In order to avoid teeth grinding and clenching we may recommend a custom-made mouthguard or splint. These are often worn at night but can also be made for the daytime to protect your teeth whenever you clench or grind them. Similar to a sports guard, these oral appliances are made to form a barrier between your top and bottom teeth. Made specifically for you, they will fit snuggly over your teeth. Each oral appliance is made to protect your teeth while also helping your jaw move into a more relaxed position.
