TMJ Treatment from Your Family Dentist 

TMJ treatment often means preventing or easing the painful symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder. The temporomandibular joint is found on both sides of the jaw. Problems like grinding your teeth while you sleep, clenching your teeth, or even excessive tension that causes you to clench your teeth can cause damage to the joint, pull muscles in your face and jaw, and make you feel tired because you aren’t getting enough sleep at night. TMJ treatment such as a night guard can keep you from making the problem worse

You don’t have to resign yourself to living with facial pain or other symptoms of TMJ disorder. Treatment is available. Call Bassett Creek Dental at 763-546-1301 for an appointment.

Night Mouth Guard for Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding, also called bruxism, is something you do involuntarily while you sleep. It can be caused by many factors including anxiety, stress, sleep apnea, and an improper bite or missing teeth. Your dentist may spot signs of wear on your teeth that is typical of bruxism. Some people wake up with a painful jaw or facial pain, which is the only clue that they’ve been grinding their teeth.

A night mouth guard for teeth grinding can’t stop you from grinding your teeth, but it can protect your teeth so that if you clench your jaw while you sleep, your teeth wont’ be damaged. It also helps to relax the muscles around your jaw. Both can make you feel better.
