One of the simplest ways to get some improvement and get some relief for patients that suffer from some jaw pain is a simple appliance, and it's often a cheap solution that can possibly provide a permanent result. We utilize a night guard that's very small and easy to get used to. And for those patients that are suffering with acute pain in their jaw or muscles of their face, maybe experiencing headaches or problems sleeping, this can be a lifesaver for them.
Many patients have some sort of dysfunction either in the jaw or some bad habits that are happening during sleep in their subconscious that can really have an effect on just the energy level you have during the day or even cause havoc in the mouth.
So, an investment into a preventative appliance like a night guard can go a long way toward preventing future problems. We brush and floss to prevent decay and gum disease, and a lot of people overlook the value in preventing future broken teeth and worn teeth and sleep problems and jaw pain with a simple implementation of a preventative night guard.

Don’t Suffer Any Longer From TMJ Disorder Symptoms
The TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is just a fancy term for where your upper and lower jaw connect. 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
- 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.
