Get the Relief You Need From TMJ Symptoms

You do not want to wake up with a sore jaw or a headache. With one of our oral appliances, you can stop daily headaches as well as nighttime clenching and grinding.

In addition to improving your smile and helping you maintain your oral health, realigning your bite with orthodontic treatment can also reduce TMJ symptoms, such as:

  • Jaw pain and stiffness
  • Headaches and earaches
  • Clicking or popping when you open and close your mouth
  • Feeling like you cannot completely open or close your mouth
  • Pain in your face, neck, and upper back

Stop the Jaw Problem & End the Jaw Pain

When you have a bite misalignment, it can affect your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and nearby tissues. These are the two joints that allow you to move your lower jaw. Teeth grinding can make those issues worse, in addition to wearing down your enamel. This extra pressure raises your risk of tooth decay and gum disease, too.

At any time, an estimated 12% of people in the United States have TMJ disorders. Women are more likely to have this condition, although anyone can develop it.
