We Will Help You Combat the Signs of Teeth Grinding

Our doctors have decades of combined experience helping people who are suffering from TMJ and teeth grinding issues. With our assistance, you can get relief from:

  • Jaw pain and stiffness
  • Headaches and earaches
  • Clicking or popping when you open and close your mouth
  • Feeling like you cannot fully open or close your mouth
  • Facial, neck, and upper back pain

TMJ is short for temporomandibular joint. You have two of these joints, and they allow you to move your lower jaw. You cannot move them as well as you should when there is a TMJ problem, however. Teeth grinding, a symptom of TMJ disorder, can damage your enamel and increase your risk of gum disease and tooth infections.

End Your Suffering by Stopping the Grind

In the United States, TMJ disorders affect more than 10 million people. Anyone can develop this condition, although women are more likely to be diagnosed with it than men. Regardless, no one wants to wake up every morning with a headache or an aching jaw. By getting a special oral appliance, you can prevent grinding and clenching your teeth together. Orthodontics may be part of your treatment, too, if the alignment of your teeth is part of your problem.

You should not accept pain as part of your daily life. If you need teeth grinding or TMJ treatment in Portage, IN, our doctors at Orthodontic Alliances are ready to get to work. Start with a consultation. Contact us online or call 219-841-7795.
