Effective Treatment for TMJ and Teeth Grinding
If you are diagnosed with TMJ or bruxism, one of our doctors may recommend a combination of treatments and modalities to relieve pain and tension around the jaw. Many patients benefit greatly from wearing a night guard at night. Treatment options may include:
- Bite adjustment - Also known as an occlusal adjustment, this restores proper bite alignment and can improve overall jaw function.
- Cosmetic dentistry - We may need to perform restoration procedures to repair teeth damaged by teeth grinding.
- Mouth guard - Wearing a night guard or a mouth guard can help to break a teeth grinding habit and relieve jaw pain.
