Stop Teeth Grinding & Start Feeling Better
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is where your lower jaw connects to your skull. When you have TMJ disorder (TMD), you may have one or more of these symptoms:
- Frequent migraine-like headaches or earaches
- Pain when biting or chewing
- Pain when opening or closing your mouth
- A jaw that gets “stuck” or locks
- Clicking or popping sounds when you open and close your mouth
- Tenderness and/or swelling of the jaw muscles
- Facial, neck, or upper back pain
Because there are many potential symptoms and causes of TMJ disorders, you should see a professional like Dr. Eccles for a proper diagnosis. Teeth grinding can also be related to TMDs or a separate issue entirely brought on by stress, depression, a bad bite, or other sources.
Find The Solution To Your TMJ Problem
To relieve any issues you may be having with tooth grinding or TMJ pain, we can create custom splints or nightguards in our general dental office. You won’t have to wait days or weeks for a lab to fabricate and ship your oral appliance!
Your appliance prevents clenching and grinding. As a result, it can reduce tension in your jaw muscles and stop headaches, earaches, and other painful symptoms of your condition.
