TMJ & Jaw Pain Relief For Patients
Do you wake in the morning with jaw pain or headaches? You may be suffering from a more serious neuromuscular dental issue such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). Teeth grinding is a major contributor to the jaw pain, sensitivity and soreness associated with TMJ. If you think you may be suffering from tooth grinding or TMJ disorder, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Patrick Lawrence and Dr. Shanup Gundecha of TrueCare Dentistry in Cary, NC.
OUR TEETH GRINDING DENTAL TREATMENT
Tooth grinding, also known as bruxism, is an extremely common dental problem that should not be taken lightly. Oftentimes patients who grind their teeth do it while they sleep, so they may not be aware of just how much damage the clenching and grinding of their teeth can cause.
The experienced dental professionals at our Cary dental office will conduct a dental exam and take digital x-rays if necessary to determine if teeth grinding is seriously affecting your dental health. For those who grind their teeth in their sleep, our Cary dentists can fit your mouth with a comfortable mouth guard to help prevent your teeth from wearing on each other. A small NTI appliance is also available.
