TMJ Therapy Will Help Your Jaw Feel Better

The team at Lopez Dental Associates wants you to know that you don’t have to keep living with jaw pain. A simple examination will help us determine if your pain is caused by inflamed temporomandibular joints (TMJs). Most people don’t think much about these joints, which connect your lower jaw to your skull, until they become irritated. Then they can cause quite a lot of pain when opening and closing your mouth. Everyday tasks like talking and yawning can be extremely uncomfortable.

The good news is, your dentist can treat your TMJ problems with a custom-fit TMJ appliance. You’ll place it in your mouth at bedtime, and it will gently move your lower jaw forward to relieve tension on your TMJs.

Your appliance will:

  • Allow your TMJs to begin healing so that you feel better soon
  • Fit comfortably in your mouth, so you won’t have any problem getting used to it
  • Prevent teeth grinding, which can damage your tooth enamel and cause you to need dental crowns to repair your teeth

Since teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) is a leading cause of tension headaches, you may also experience fewer and less severe headaches.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding
Does TMJ treatment work?

TMJ problems typically won’t go away without treatment. TMJ pain is usually caused when the joints in your jaw become inflamed. This commonly occurs because of two habits that put your jaw under pressure: clenching and teeth grinding. We can make a custom mouthguard for you that will stop these behaviors so that your jaw can heal.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

You may need ongoing treatment for a TMJ disorder. Fortunately, by wearing a simple appliance, you can prevent teeth grinding, a common cause of TMJ problems. We have helped many patients find the solution to this particularly painful problem. Today, they are enjoying their lives with fewer headaches, earaches, jaw pain, and jaw stiffness.

Will insurance pay for my TMJ treatment?

Your insurance may pay for part of your TMJ treatment. We can help determine what your plan will and won’t cover and what your portion of the cost may be. Keep in mind that we offer financing options to help pay for your treatment. We work with CareCredit, which has low-interest payment plans to make your treatment more accessible.
