We Can Treat Associated Bruxism
In many cases, bruxism disorder is the primary cause for TMJ disorder. This is the issue that takes place when patients are involuntarily yet frequently grinding and/or clenching their teeth! The result? It puts a serious strain your jaw joints, which leads to a disorder. Fortunately, by seeing our team for bruxism treatment, you can stop the excessive motion and pressure, which will thereby help keep your jaw joints safe.
We Will Offer Lifestyle Suggestions
You might have started to wonder what you’re doing on a daily basis that might be contributing to your TMJ disorder. However, you may not really know where to turn or what to change. The good news here is that we can very easily ask you about your habits and help you implement particular changes that will give your jaw joints a break! For instance, we can help you change your snacking habits, chewing habits, and more, for significant protection.
We Will Address Smile Concerns That Contribute
Remember that TMJ disorder may also develop or become worse when you’re dealing with an issue that causes your TMJs to compensate for a problem with your bite’s balance. Maybe you’re missing a tooth that needs to be replaced, so you have to find a new way to chew. Maybe your denture is damaged! Whatever the detail, come in for the care you need, so your bite is correctly aligned and your jaw joints are safe.
