Jaw/TMJ Diagnosis and Splint Therapy

People who grind their teeth can sometimes develop a serious problem with their jaw, which left untreated, can adversely affect the teeth, gums and bone structures of the mouth.

One of the most common jaw disorders is related to a problem with the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull (TMJ). People with disorders of the TMJ often experience frequent headaches, neck aches, and in some cases tooth sensitivity.

Some treatments include muscle relaxants, aspirin or wearing a small plastic appliance in the mouth during sleep.
