    TMJ/TMD Treatments

    TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, the hinge that connects your lower jaw to your skull. If the structure or function of TMJ is affected, it leads to a condition called TMD (temporomandibular disorder). TMD can lead to several painful symptoms, such as jaw aches, clicking or popping sounds, limited mouth opening, and difficulty in eating. Our dental experts can treat this condition with custom-made oral appliances, medication, physical therapy, or surgery.

    Occlusal Issues (Bite) Analysis and Adjustment

    Bite refers to the way your upper and lower jaw fit together. If there is any abnormality with your jaws and teeth, it can impact your bite. These issues can cause excessive wear of teeth, tooth sensitivity, and jaw pain. That’s why our experts provide bite analysis using cutting-edge technology. With the help of this procedure, we can diagnose occlusal issues early on and adjust them by reshaping your teeth, placing restorations, or using orthodontic devices.

    Bruxism/Teeth Grinding

    If you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth at night without being aware of it, you may have bruxism. It can cause the wearing of tooth enamel, tooth fractures, gum recession, and TMJ disorders. Bruxism requires timely intervention because it can negatively affect your oral health and functions. Our dentists offer customized oral appliances to treat bruxism that can prevent you from grinding your teeth at night. We also offer guidance and stress management techniques to control this habit.

    Occlusal Guards

    For people who are suffering from bruxism, TMD, sleep apnea, or snoring, our skilled dental professionals offer occlusal guards. These are custom-made appliances that comfortably fit over your teeth and prevent the painful symptoms of these conditions. They can help reduce the pressure on your jaw joints and muscles, protect your teeth from damage, and improve your breathing and sleep quality. Our dentist will design them to target your specific requirements.
