Providing Painless Solutions For Your TMJ And Teeth Grinding Issues

After a thorough examination of your mouth at Gentle Family Dentists, Dr. Carol or Dr. Roberto will recommend painless TMJ and teeth grinding treatment to prevent further discomfort or damage to your teeth. These may include:

  • An acrylic splint, which will cover a portion of your upper or lower teeth to separate them and relieve TMJ issues
  • A customized nightguard that will relieve stress on your jaw joints and prevent you from grinding your teeth
  • Orthodontics if you have an uneven bite that is causing TMJ pain

Why You May Need Treatment For TMJ Or Teeth Grinding

The reason you may need custom oral appliances or orthodontics is because of your temporomandibular joints, known as TMJ. Stress on these joints can lead to TMD, or temporomandibular joint dysfunction.

A former injury or arthritis could be the cause of your TMD and can lead to grinding your teeth at night without you even knowing it (a condition known as bruxism). Teeth grinding can greatly damage your teeth’s enamel, and it should be dealt with swiftly.

Call Gentle Family Dentists at 563-288-2612 for a consultation at our West Liberty, IA or Muscatine, IA dentist office, or contact us through our online form to book your appointment or ask any questions. By using the most comfortable and noninvasive techniques, you can enjoy a healthier, pain-free smile soon.
