Potential Signs Of A TMJ Disorder

Teeth grinding (Bruxism)  is often a symptom of a TMJ disorder (TMD), but it can also be caused by separate issues like stress. For a proper diagnosis of why you are experiencing jaw discomfort or teeth grinding, contact us for a professional evaluation.

If you are experiencing any of the following, you may have a TMD:

  • A jaw that gets “stuck” in the opened or closed position
  • Popping, clicking, or grating sounds when you chew
  • An uncomfortable bite, as if your upper and lower jaw are fitting together improperly
  • Swelling or soreness in your face, jaw, neck, and/or shoulders
  • An earache without any infection being present

Our TMJ And Teeth Grinding Solutions

If you visit us with TMJ or Bruxism problems, we will perform a thorough assessment during an initial appointment to diagnose the issue. Using a special oral appliance, we will be able to determine the specific pattern of your TMD.

In a second appointment, we will take precise impressions to ensure your custom oral appliance works and fits great. You will use the oral appliance while you sleep to shift your jaw slightly to prevent teeth grinding and allow your jaw to heal.

We can also prescribe medications and discuss behaviors to avoid or discourage teeth grinding.

Get relief from jaw pain with teeth grinding or  TMJ treatment from the team. Call 972-360-9944 or use our online form.
