Eliminate Your TMJ Symptoms to Feel Like Yourself Again

There are a wide variety of reasons for  teeth grinding, a habit often linked to TMJ disorders. Stress, anxiety, or even sleep apnea can cause you to grind your teeth. Although the reasons for a TMJ disorder aren’t widely understood, grinding your teeth or suffering an injury to your jaw can trigger this issue.

Dr. Stanfield can help you protect your teeth and address any underlying issues that cause your TMJ disorder. One of the primary ways he can alleviate the damage of teeth grinding is with a custom-fit mouthguard. Many people assume a store-bought mouthguard works just as well, but there are many benefits you won’t experience with boil-and-bite guards. You’ll find:

  • Your mouthguard is made with a BPA-free durable plastic that can last for years.
  • Because it will be custom-made for you, you’ll be able to sleep in comfort while you are wearing it.
  • Our anterior mouthguards are less bulky, so they are much more comfortable to wear.
  • By relieving the tension on your jaw, you’ll put an end to your TMJ pain and allow your jaw to heal.

Another possible solution to grinding your teeth is orthodontic treatment. If your bite is off, it can cause clenching and teeth grinding habits. Fixing your alignment issues will correct your bite and provide much-needed relief. Teeth grinding is also common among those with sleep apnea. So you may also benefit from a night guard that relieves apnea symptoms by enabling you to breathe easily while you sleep.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

TMJ problems typically won’t go away without treatment. TMJ pain is usually caused when the joints in your jaw become inflamed. This commonly occurs because of two habits that put your jaw under pressure: clenching and teeth grinding. We can make a custom mouthguard for you that will stop these behaviors so that your jaw can heal.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

We understand you want to end the pain caused by a TMJ disorder as soon as you can. The truth is that treatment can take weeks or months depending on the severity of your situation and what needs to be done. For most patients, an oral appliance is a perfect solution in and of itself. For others, orthodontics or restorations may be needed to realign teeth to reduce grinding in the long term.

Will insurance pay for my TMJ treatment?

Your insurance may pay for a portion of the cost of your TMJ treatment. We recommend you check with your carrier to determine what they will and won’t cover. We’ll work with your insurance to maximize your benefits and ensure that your out-of-pocket cost is minimal. Our team wants you to get the help you need to feel better.
