There are a variety of causes for TMJ disorders. Injury, arthritis, teeth grinding, and more can cause your temporomandibular joint to become inflamed, triggering the condition. Whatever the reason, you’ll love our simple solution.

At Confident Smiles of Laurens, we can create a custom mouthguard called an occlusal bite guard. It acts like a cushion between your teeth. It’s designed to make your mouth feel better and alleviate your jaw pain.

You can expect many benefits from wearing a custom-made occlusal guard:

  • Comfortable Fit – We take digital impressions of your teeth and send the information to an outside lab that creates your custom bite guard. It will fit you perfectly since it’s designed uniquely for you.
  • Pain Relief – The bite guard relieves the pressure caused by grinding your teeth and clenching your jaw. As a result, your jaw has a chance to heal. The guard also alleviates unpleasant symptoms like headaches.
  • Better Oral Health – Your oral health is improved since you reduce the wear-and-tear on your teeth. We’ll also recommend restorative treatments to repair damage caused by your disorder.
  • Easy Maintenance – You don’t have to do anything special to care for your custom mouthguard. Just brush it with a gentle soap and a soft toothbrush.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

TMJ problems typically won’t go away without treatment. TMJ pain is usually caused when the joints in your jaw become inflamed. This commonly occurs because of two habits that put your jaw under pressure: clenching and teeth grinding. We can make a custom mouthguard for you to stop these behaviors so your jaw can heal.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

There is no standard length for TMJ treatment. It depends on many factors, including the severity of your symptoms. Since a mouthguard not only relieves TMJ pain but also prevents damage to teeth caused by grinding, many patients make it a permanent addition to their bedtime routine.

What are the signs of a TMJ disorder?

Signs of a TMJ disorder may include jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds when chewing, difficulty opening the mouth completely, facial pain, headaches, and ear pain or ringing. Some people may also experience neck and shoulder pain or toothaches unrelated to dental problems. Also, your jaw may feel locked or stuck. If you experience any of these symptoms, visit our practice for help.
