At CandC Dental, we often see patients who have problems with grinding their teeth or clenching their jaw. While that may seem only mildly annoying, jaw clenching and teeth grinding can actually lead to problems with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) – the joint that connects the skull and lower jaw. People who have problems with the TMJ often experience:
- Clicking or popping when they open and/or close their mouths
- Frequent headaches and/or neck-aches
- Tooth sensitivity
- Pain or discomfort in the jaw
- Jaws that lock open or shut
- Trouble chewing or a sudden uncomfortable bite
There is no need to live with TMJ pain. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, hightail it down to our office today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Cody or Dr. Cashion. We offer a variety of TMJ treatments, including night guards, designed to help get your jaw into top shape so you can avoid unnecessary problems in the future. Night guards are perfect for those who suffer from night-time teeth grinding and jaw clenching. During your consultation, we’ll help you learn which treatment is right for you!
