Temporomandibular joint disorder is a condition which affects the joints which connect your jaw to your lower skull (temporomandibular joint). Those that suffer from TMJ disorders often have joints that are out of line or do not properly function, resulting in symptoms such as migraines, tinnitus, jaw pain and in some cases damage to teeth. Patients that neglect to treat their TMJ often end up having to spend additional money and time correcting dental complications down the road. Looking for a TMJ dentist near you? Schedule an appointment today! We’d be happy to assess your overall oral health to determine if a TMJ treatment is right for you.
At Kingwood Perfect Smiles, we believe prevention is always the best first step when it comes to TMJ treatment. Certain dentists may recommend surgery or narcotics to treat your symptoms. However, we believe relief can be achieved through other, non-invasive treatment options such as our custom-fit TMJ mouthguards. Our mouthguards are a customized orthotic device which can reduce the symptoms of TMJ while protecting your smile from damage. We believe this option is better than jumping straight to surgery and medication.
When it comes to selecting a mouthguard for your TMJ treatment, we recommend avoiding over-the-counter mouthguards, they are known not to fit properly and are often very uncomfortable, resulting in patients discontinuing use and wasting their money. At Kingwood Perfect Smiles we can fabricate a custom-fit mouthguard which perfectly fits in your mouth, properly protecting your teeth while being comfortable. Your TMJ mouthguard is meant to be worn only at night while you sleep, and can help reduce clenching and grinding so that you experience a relief in symptoms.
