Feel Better With TMJ Therapy

TMJ disorder (TMD) can cause intense jaw pain and discomfort. The good news is, it can be treated using a custom mouthguard or splint. These devices are professionally made using digital impressions of your teeth. A mouthguard fits comfortably over your teeth. It will help realign your jaw joint while relieving muscle pressure. By stabilizing the jaw joint, it prevents teeth grinding and clenching, which are common causes of TMJ pain. The mouthguard acts as a cushion, reducing the impact of your bite and allowing the jaw muscles to relax.

Using a TMJ mouthguard will:

  • Provide pain relief by alleviating jaw pain, headaches, and facial discomfort associated with TMJ disorder
  • Help relax the muscles, reducing tension and minimizing jaw clenching and teeth grinding
  • Act as a barrier, protecting your teeth from damage caused by teeth grinding (also known as bruxism)
  • Improve your sleep quality by reducing grinding during sleep

To get the relief you need and deserve with TMJ treatment in San Jose, call Hamada Family Dentistry today at 669-201-8896. You can also request an appointment online. Be sure to schedule your next dental cleaning and exam too.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment/Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

TMJ problems typically won’t go away without treatment. TMJ pain is usually caused when the joints in your jaw become inflamed. This commonly occurs because of two habits that put your jaw under pressure: clenching and teeth grinding. We can make a custom mouthguard for you that will stop these behaviors so your jaw can heal.

Is TMJ causing my headaches?

It’s possible, yes. Inflammation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can lead to pain in the surrounding muscles of the head and neck, which can be misinterpreted as migraines. Wearing a mouthguard can alleviate the pain caused by TMJ inflammation and potentially provide relief from headaches.

What are the signs of a TMJ disorder?

Signs of a TMJ disorder may include jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds when chewing, difficulty opening the mouth completely, facial pain, headaches, and ear pain or ringing. Some people may also experience neck and shoulder pain or toothaches unrelated to dental problems. Also, your jaw may feel locked or stuck. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to visit our practice for help.
