TMJ and Bruxism (Tooth Grinding Syndrome)
Do you suffer from pain in your face, jaw, or teeth, have trouble chewing, or hear popping and clicking noises in your jaw? Can you see your teeth shortening or chipping? These could all be symptoms of a temporo-mandibular disorder (also known as TMD). TMD describes a range of problems related to the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ). There are a variety of treatments of TMD, including a custom TMJ appliance. These appliances will also protect the teeth if you are a night grinder.
