TMJ Disorders and Occlusal Guard:
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the place where your jaw and skull meet. The sole purpose of this joint is to help you move your jaw allowing you to speak, eat, and even yawn. The special anatomy of this joint makes it vulnerable to many disorders. Please reach to us, if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Pain on the face and neck while moving your jaw.
- Severe discomfort when you open your mouth.
- Swelling on the sides of your face.
- An uncomfortable bite.
Our team will refer you to the Occlusal Guard. A plastic mouth guard is worn at night to prevent your teeth from clenching and grinding which worsens your TMJ disorders.
