TMJ Treatment & Nightguards in Edmond
Jaw Pain from Grinding Teeth
When your mouth is working in harmony, the nerves, muscles, bones, and teeth, function together comfortably and easily. But when the jaw joints, also called temporomandibular joints (TMJ), are misaligned, your system can become fatigued. At night, they may even react by grinding your teeth, which is known as a common dental condition called bruxism.
Count on Relief from a Custom-Made Night Guard
A nightguard, also known as a bite splint, is a fitted appliance you wear over your teeth at night to protect them from grinding and clenching.
Unprotected, grinding, and clenching can lead to several issues, including:
- Chronic earaches
- Cracked teeth
- Broken crowns
- Severe tooth wear
- Migraine headaches
- Unexplained muscle soreness or pain in the face, neck, jaw, and shoulder
