Some people experience TMJ disorder symptoms for a short period of time if undergoing immense stress or anxiety. However, others develop a chronic condition. For these people, TMJ treatment will be essential for overcoming the pain and functional problems they’ll experience. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include:

  • Clicking or popping of the jaw
  • Chronic headaches, jaw pain, facial pain, and neck pain
  • Ear pain or congestion
  • Limited opening of the mouth
  • Locking of the jaw

TMJ Treatment Options

The problems listed above can be caused or exacerbated by nighttime teeth grinding and clenching. In order to reduce this pressure, our doctors fit you for a nightguard. This custom-made oral appliance prevents damage to teeth as well, which can wear down, break, or even come loose because of bruxism.

A custom nightguard protects teeth from damage and reduces pressure, but successful TMJ treatment may also involve stress reduction techniques like exercise, talk therapy, meditation, and stretching. Our team can make recommendations that fit your unique needs and preferences.
