Discomfort and tenderness in your jaw, earaches, difficulty chewing, locking of the jaw joints, and headaches can all be warning signs of a TMJ disorder. If you notice any of these symptoms, you can schedule an appointment with our team. We will carefully examine your jaw joints and take X-rays as needed to confirm whether TMJ problems are present. Then we can review your options for TMJ treatment and put together a plan that addresses your specific needs.

Occlusal Splints

In many cases, wearing an occlusal splint can go a long way toward putting a stop to your TMJ-related pain. The splint will move your jaw slightly forward to help your TMJ find a more natural resting position, allowing it to relax. This reduces the tension in your jaw, giving your muscles and ligaments a chance to rest and recover. Oftentimes, an occlusal splint can help you find relief in a matter of weeks, although in some cases you might have to wear it for a few months.
