Get Out of Pain With TMJ Therapy

Get Out of Pain With TMJ Therapy

You probably don’t pay much attention to your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) – that is, until they begin to cause you problems. These complex joints sit on either side of your head, attaching your jaw to your skull. They make it possible to open and close your mouth to eat, talk, yawn, laugh, and sing. When your TMJs become inflamed or irritated, you can experience a great deal of pain trying to perform these common actions. Moving your jaw at all can be excruciating. Some TMJ patients even experience their jaw locking into place.

A custom TMJ appliance from Mauldin Square Dental can help eliminate all these problems, however. We’ll take impressions of your teeth and fit you with a professionally crafted mouthguard to wear while sleeping. The appliance will gently move your lower jaw forward, relieving tension on your TMJs. With the stress on your jaw joints gone, they can begin the healing process, which means you’ll soon feel better and be able to enjoy life more. You’ll find it easier to carry out your normal routine without having to be careful how wide you open your mouth or what kinds of foods you’re eating.

Your new TMJ appliance will also help prevent teeth grinding. Many people grind their teeth (known as bruxism) in their sleep without any awareness of it. Over time, bruxism can damage your tooth enamel and require restorative dentistry to correct the problem. Your appliance will keep your teeth apart while you sleep so that your enamel stays intact and you can avoid more extensive dental work.

Get the relief you need with TMJ treatment in Mauldin. New patients call 864-774-4758 and existing patients call 864-397-5944 for an appointment. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

The key to relieving TMJ pain is easing pressure on your jaw. To do that, we can make you an appliance that gently moves your jaw into a position that keeps pressure off your jaw. The appliance also keeps you from clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth, two behaviors that trigger TMJ pain.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

You may need ongoing treatment for a TMJ disorder. Fortunately, by wearing a simple appliance, you can prevent teeth grinding, a common cause of TMJ problems. We have helped many patients find the solution to this particularly painful problem. Today, they are enjoying their lives with fewer headaches, earaches, jaw pain, and jaw stiffness.

Will insurance pay for my TMJ treatment?

Your insurance may pay for a portion of the cost of your TMJ treatment. We recommend you check with your carrier to determine what they will and won’t cover. We’ll work with your insurance to maximize your benefits and ensure that your out-of-pocket cost is minimal. Our team wants you to get the help you need to feel better.
