At West Lakes Family Dentistry we provide leading-edge solutions to improve your oral health and sense of wellbeing. Our 50266 TMJ dentist is an experienced provider of customized night guards to treat TMJ disorder, which is a condition that makes it painful and difficult to move the joints connecting your upper and lower jaws. As skilled and compassionate providers of care, we offer treatment that is personalized, more convenient and stress-free.
The TMJ is one of the most complex joints systems in your body as you use the left and right TMJs every time you swallow, chew, speak or yawn. If your jaw doesn’t feel right, if notice a clicking or popping sound when you move your mouth, having difficulty moving your mouth, the joint is locking, or if you have facial pain around your ears and mouth, be sure to discuss these symptoms with our 50266 TMJ dentist. You may be suffering with a TMJ disorder. As a first step in care, our team will evaluate your symptoms, discuss your dental and medical history and perform a comprehensive examination to accurately diagnose TMJ disorder. Factors such as arthritis, misaligned teeth, dental injuries and bruxism can all potentially cause or exacerbate TMJ disorder. Bruxism refers to a habit of grinding your teeth at night, which places pressure on the joints in the jaw, causing pain and inflammation. With a customized night guard, our dentist can prevent teeth grinding and alleviate pressure on the TMJ. The night guard fits comfortably and precisely, keeping your teeth slightly separated while you sleep. Our friendly professional team will take the time to teach you how to wear and care for your night guard, for the most effective outcome of care.
With the help of our 50266 TMJ dentist, it’s easier than ever to get relief from this uncomfortable condition. At West Lakes Family Dentistry we provide customized portable, easy-to-use night guards to treat TMJ disorder. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
