TMJ misalignment can cause headaches, jaw pain and teeth grinding
Teeth grinding can often be a sign of stress, but when done involuntarily at night it can indicate that your Temporo Mandibular Joint (TMJ) is out of alignment. You may not even notice this problem until you start suffering from headaches, aches and pains around the jaw, clicking jaws, or worn teeth.
Fortunately, there are simple solutions to help ease the pain from an unaligned TMJ. A simple appliance can be worn as you sleep. This device helps your jaw sit properly, eliminating the tension that causes neck pain, stress headaches and jaw clenching.
These appliances are created by our expert team at Wellard Dental from impressions of your mouth to ensure the best possible fit. Best of all, it is a simple task to maintain your deprogrammer; simply give it a clean with your usual toothbrush and toothpaste and rinse with water.
At Wellard Dental, we often see patients who are aware of clenching or grinding their teeth. Our expert team can help recognise, diagnose and treat the symptoms of TMJ where they appear. By visiting a professional, you can be sure that you get the right device to help with your problem, helping you relax and easing your pain. Simply book an appointment to find out more and speak to one of our dental experts.
Please note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding with a surgical or invasive procedure, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
