Addressing Daily Pain With TMJ Therapy

woman with jaw painLiving with pain every time you try to bite and chew food can be difficult to endure. Unfortunately, this is a frequent issue for someone with TMJ disorder. They can also struggle with pain or sensitivity at other times when moving their jaw, and in the mornings because of nighttime issues with bruxism. Sunny Smiles is prepared to offer TMJ therapy for those who experience difficulties with poor joint alignment and pain. With a custom oral appliance, we can ease tension on your joints so that you can stop living with discomfort. You can also receive help with ongoing teeth grinding issues that can disrupt your sleep.

Problems With Jaw Pain And Sensitivity Should Not Be Ignored

Pain and sensitivity issues can interfere with your daily life if you have TMJ disorder. This problem can occur for several reasons. You can start to develop trouble with your bite movement because of poor joint alignment, which can occur due to an uneven bite, because of a past injury, or due to stress from teeth grinding. You can also experience difficulties because of arthritis in your joints. By providing you with a custom oral appliance, your dentist can help you improve your alignment and ease ongoing discomfort.

Addressing Issues With Poor Joint Alignment And Pain

After an evaluation, we can determine if TMJ issues are responsible for issues like pain and joint stiffness, as well as potentially related trouble with headaches, facial pain, and neck and shoulder discomfort. The custom appliance provided to you can help you change the position of your joints to improve movement and resting alignment. We can also look out for problems with teeth that might call for restorative dental work. When these issues are not resolved, they can make it difficult for you to apply and release pressure in a way that feels natural.

We Can Also Resolve Problems With Teeth Grinding

Nightly issues with bruxism can lead to discomfort as well as potentially serious dental damage. An oral guard can keep your upper and lower rows of teeth separate during rest, stopping this problem from doing more harm to your enamel. If you have damaged teeth already, you can learn more about the cosmetic and restorative services that can address problems with your smile.
