Don’t Suffer Any Longer From TMJ Disorder

The TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is just a fancy term for where your upper and lower jaw connect. When you have problems with your TMJs, it’s known as TMJ disorder (TMD). Because the symptoms of TMJ disorder can also be caused by other issues, you will need to see a dental professional like Dr. Wallin for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

That said, if you are experiencing any of these issues, you may have TMJ disorder:

  • Headaches or migraines
  • Earaches
  • Pressure in your face
  • Clicking or popping sounds when you open and close your mouth
  • Tenderness or soreness in jaw muscles
  • A jaw that locks up

After a thorough examination, Dr. Wallin will provide a custom night guard, if needed, to relieve the discomfort of TMJ disorder.

A Custom Oral Appliance Prevents Teeth Grinding, Headaches, & Snoring

Even if you do not have full-on TMJ disorder, Dr. Wallin can help relieve your pain. To prevent teeth grinding and clenching, a frequent contributor to headaches and migraines, he will recommend a custom night guard.

Chronic snoring is another issue that Dr. Wallin can help remedy. Thanks to a custom snoring appliance that slightly shifts your jaw position, you and your household will be able to sleep comfortably and quietly through the night.

Don’t put up with jaw pain, headaches, or snoring. Call us today for Longmont, CO TMJ treatment and teeth grinding solutions that can change your life: 720-504-2539. You can also request an appointment online.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

TMJ treatment has helped many patients once again enjoy everyday activities like talking, eating, and laughing without pain. The key to successful TMJ therapy is finding a treatment method that works best for you. We can create a custom night guard to wear while you sleep that allows your jaw to heal naturally. You can also benefit from an oral appliance worn at night if you’re a chronic snorer.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

There is no standard length for TMJ treatment. It depends on many factors, including the severity of your symptoms. Since a mouthguard not only relieves TMJ pain but also prevents damage to teeth caused by grinding, many patients make it a permanent addition to their bedtime routine.
