TMJ Devices in Richmond

If you clench your jaw tightly while sleeping, you may end up with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). This condition can cause pain in the jaw, face, neck, and ear, which can have a negative impact on your mood and overall well-being.

Symptoms of TMJ

If you frequently wake up with a jaw that feels tense or sore, it’s possible that you are experiencing temporomandibular joint disorder. Consult with your dentist early, as they can provide a solution, and you can avoid more serious problems and unnecessary pain.

Types of TMD Devices

One of the devices commonly used for TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) is a bite guard, also called an occlusal splint. This device is personalized to fit your mouth and provides a strong barrier that can help reduce teeth clenching while you sleep. If you suffer from severe clenching, your dentist may suggest other treatment options to resolve the issue.
