Protect Your Teeth From the Damage of Grinding

Teeth grinding hurts your smile and interferes with your everyday life. Millions of people clench their teeth or grind them together, but they unaware that this is happening because they do it while they are sleeping.

Teeth grinding can also be a major factor in TMJ disorders. Some common symptoms of this condition include:

  • Jaw pain
  • Sensation like your jaw is stuck
  • Frequent headaches and earaches
  • Clicking when you open or close your mouth
  • Pain in the face, neck, and upper back pain

Orthodontic Alliances can be your trusted source for superior treatments to eliminate your TMJ troubles. You are getting world-class care when you come to our office.

Members of our team have been treating TMJ and teeth grinding since the 1980s. Patients from throughout the region have been referred to us from doctors and dentists because we have developed a reputation for our teeth grinding solutions.

Through our holistic approach to TMJ treatment, we examine the alignment of your teeth and jaw, which can affect your teeth grinding. Misaligned teeth make you more likely to grind and clench your teeth. That causes pressure on your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and leads to the painful symptoms you are experiencing.

Orthodontic treatment may be part of your care plan. You may address the cause of your grinding by correcting your smile and your bite. Our orthodontic treatments include:

  • Traditional Braces – This is your solution if you want a tried-and-true treatment for a straight smile. Metal braces work on practically any alignment issue with your teeth.
  • Ceramic Braces – You can get the benefits of metal braces in a less noticeable way with ceramic braces. These brackets closely match the color of your teeth.
  • Invisalign – For a modern orthodontic option, many patients with mild or moderate alignment issues prefer this treatment as a discreet alternative to braces.
  • Surgical Orthodontics – Patients have an open bite, a protruding lower jaw, or a weak chin can do this to change the alignment of their jaws. This service can help you fix your smile, improve your oral health, and address symptoms of your teeth grinding.
