Our TMJ Therapy Provides Jaw-Soothing Relief

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) on each side of your head help you eat, talk, laugh, and yawn. Researchers haven’t yet determined an exact cause of TMJ disorder, but when these complex joints become irritated and inflamed, you can experience significant pain.

TMJ sufferers can sometimes get relief by applying heat or ice to their jaw or by doing simple jaw-stretching exercises. Often these remedies are not enough, however. That’s where the dental experts at Cupertino Family Dental Center can help. A thorough examination by one of our dentists will tell us if your pain is related to TMJ disorder.

If so, we can craft a custom mouthguard for you right in our office. It will:

  • Gently move your jaw forward, easing the pressure off your TMJ
  • Help eliminate jaw pain and swelling
  • Keep you from grinding your teeth while you sleep

Teeth grinding is a major cause of TMJ irritation (as well as a symptom of it), so stopping it will reduce your jaw pain and protect your tooth enamel from damage. In addition, studies have shown that grinding your teeth can cause tension and migraine headaches. By eliminating teeth grinding, you can experience fewer and less intense headaches.
