The temporomandibular joints, or TMJ for short, are some of the most complex joints in the entire human body. Located on either side of your head, directly below your ears, the TMJ connects your upper and lower jaws. When these joints become painful or difficult to move, you may require TMJ treatment 91311 for TMJ disorder. At Aesthetic Smile Designs, we provide customized night guards, to alleviate the symptoms of TMJ disorder, improving your health and sense of wellbeing.
If you notice a clicking or popping sound when you open and close your mouth, or if your jaw locks in place or hurts when you move it, be sure to discuss these symptoms with our dentist, as they may indicate TMJ disorder. TMJ disorder can be attributed to a number of causes, including injury, arthritis, an uneven bite and a nighttime teeth grinding habit called bruxism. Bruxism can place excess strain on the temporomandibular joints, leading to TMJ disorder or exacerbating the condition. Bruxism can also wear down your teeth, causing them to fracture and chip. With a customized night guard, our dentist can prevent bruxism and deliver effective TMJ treatment 91311. A night guard fits over your top and bottom teeth, like a retainer, keeping your teeth slightly separated while you sleep. The night guard alleviates pressure on the TMJ to improve your symptoms. Our customized night guards fit comfortably and precisely, and are portable and easy to clean. Our team of professionals will teach you how to properly wear and care for your night guard, for the most effective treatment results.
At Aesthetic Smile Designs, we can protect your teeth against a nighttime teeth grinding habit, helping you enjoy better oral health. We make TMJ treatment 91311 convenient and suited to your individual needs. To learn more about TMJ disorder or bruxism, call today.
