Imagine a Life Free From Jaw Pain
Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are located on both sides of your head. These joints make it possible for you to open and close your mouth. If they become irritated, simple activities like eating, talking, and yawning can cause you a great deal of pain. You can even experience pain in other areas of your face and near your ears.
The good news is that a comfortable appliance – custom-made for you – can provide relief. During your examination, Dr. Miner will determine if your pain is TMJ-related. If it is, we can craft a special night guard for you to wear while sleeping.
This device will gently move your lower jaw forward to ease the tension on your TMJ. Although the movement is slight, it will be enough to help the joints relax – so that the rest of your body can relax, too. The first night you wear your new night guard might be the best night of sleep you’ve had in a while!
Plus, your night guard will help stop you from grinding your teeth. Over time, teeth grinding can cause significant damage to your tooth enamel that could require restorative dental work.
If your pain seems like you might require surgery or another type of specialized care, Dr. Miner will refer you to a trusted specialist for a second opinion.
