TMJ & TMD Treatment

Jaw Pain Solutions

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect your lower jawbone to your skull. These joints get a lot of use throughout the day as you speak, chew, swallow, and yawn.

Some symptoms of TMJ include, pain in the jaw area, ringing, or stuffiness in the ears. Other symptoms can include frequent headaches or neck aches, clicking or popping sound when the jaw moves, and muscle spasms in the jaw area. More severe cases can lead to a  change in the alignment of top and bottom teeth, locked jaw or limited opening of the mouth.

If you are experiencing any of these jaw pain symptoms, please schedule a consultation with us. Our most common solution for patients suffering from TMJ & TMD is a night guard. There are many variations, including NTI, hard or soft, or a combination of hard outside with soft lining.



If you often wake up with jaw pain, earaches, or headaches, or if you find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth, you may have a common condition called “bruxism.” Many people do not even know that they grind their teeth, as it often occurs when one is sleeping. If not corrected, bruxism can lead to broken teeth, cracked teeth, or even tooth loss. There is an easy, non-invasive treatment for bruxism: nightguards. Nightguards are an easy way to prevent the wear and damage that teeth-grinding causes over time. Custom-made by your dentist from comfortable materials to fit your teeth, a nightguard is inserted over your top or bottom teeth.


Protecting your smile while playing sports is essential. Mouthguards help protect your teeth and gums from injury. Choosing the right mouthguard is essential. There are three basic types of mouthguards: the pre-made mouthguard, the “boil-and-bite” fitted mouthguard, and a custom-made mouthguard from your dentist. We use PlaySafe mouthguards as they are the best materials and come in different thicknesses depending on the activity. They are also customizable as to multi-colors, names and logos.
