Oral Appliances For TMJ
If you have long-standing facial or jaw pain, if your jaw locks or makes clicking sounds, if you suffer from headaches in your temples, unexplained ear pain, or persistent severe neck pain in the morning, you’re probably quite miserable. If the cause of your symptoms has been difficult to diagnose, you may have a TMJ problem, and a custom-fitted oral appliance could help.
At New York TMJ & Orofacial Pain, oral appliances for TMJ (also called TMJ mouthguards) are used to address a variety of problems, such as:
- Tooth clenching and grinding at night (sleep bruxism)
- Morning symptoms such as headaches in your temples, lockjaw, jaw muscle pain, and sore and sensitive teeth
- Snoring and more serious sleep breathing disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea
- Daytime jaw over-use behaviors
Our practice philosophy is to get to know you as a person, not just as a patient, so we can get to the bottom of what’s causing your problem. Your symptoms are familiar to us, and we are dedicated to helping you get better. We’ve helped thousands of people by providing the correct diagnosis and care plan, often using oral appliances for TMJ.
