Is A Problem With Your Jaw Lowering Your Quality Of Life?
Your quality of life can change for the worse when you have untreated problems with TMJ disorder. There are different reasons why trouble with your jaw movement and alignment are starting to affect you. It can be traced to trouble with your dental health that makes a comfortable bite movement less accessible. It can also be due to an injury or problems with arthritis in your jaw joints. You may be aggravating the joints and muscles because of teeth grinding issues. In addition to finding out why you are in pain, we can discuss therapy to relieve tension and improve your biting and chewing motions!
We Can Provide TMJ Therapy To Ease Tension On Your Jaw Joints And Muscles
Corrective therapy from a custom oral appliance can help you put TMJ disorder behind you. By wearing your appliance during the night, you will be able to reduce the tension from poor alignment as it helps hold your lower jaw in its ideal place. This can lead to better jaw movement as well as positive changes in your resting position. We can also use appliance therapy to help if you need to stop teeth grinding from happening while you sleep.
Better Dental Health Can Improve Your Bite
If you have problems with your oral health that negatively impact your ability to bite and chew, we can help by providing the appropriate restorative dental work. Through treatment for damaged, misshapen, or unhealthy teeth, we can take on problems that make it harder for evenly apply and release pressure whenever you apply and release pressure, making it easier to keep your jaw in a more comfortable position.
