How We Can Help Treat Your Paint
TMJ disorder is often related to common dental problems that are treatable. It can be associated, for example, with malocclusion (over- or underbite), stress or anxiety, a traumatic injury, or other things that can be looked at and treated by a dentist — a specific culprit can be bruxism, or teeth grinding.
One common method of treatment for TMJ is through a mouth or nightguard, also known as occlusal splints. These are custom-made to best fit your teeth and they help protect against teeth grinding, which can not only wear down your teeth
Other solutions that we explore include:
- Using warm and cold compresses;
- Dietary restriction to softer foods;
- Practicing stress-relief techniques such as yoga and meditation;
- Ending habits that can worsen the problem, such as chewing gum or ice.
