Enjoy Personalized Solutions For Jaw Problems

When you visit us for help with teeth grinding or jaw pain, we will carefully assess your situation to provide the best treatment possible. In most cases, a custom mouthguard or another form of oral appliance should do the trick.

Just wear the mouthguard while you sleep to prevent teeth grinding and other causes of tension in your jaw joints. This will allow your TMJ to rest and heal, thereby relieving the inflammation and pain.

Teeth grinding (bruxism) can damage your tooth enamel to the point where restorative repair is needed. Grinding can be a symptom of TMD or a separate issue entirely. Since teeth grinding is a major cause of tension and migraine headaches, eliminating bruxism can also reduce these kinds of headaches.

Be Aware of the Common Symptoms of TMJ Disorder

TMJ, short for temporomandibular joint, is just a fancy term for your highly complex jaw joints. Because the symptoms of TMJ disorder (TMD) overlap with many other afflictions, it’s important you visit Bell Dental Group for a proper diagnosis. That said, if you are experiencing any of the following, you may be suffering from TMD:

  • Pain, tenderness, or swelling in your jaw, face, ear area, or upper shoulder
  • A jaw that gets “stuck” in either the opened or closed position
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds when you open and close your mouth
  • Pain or sensitivity while chewing
