How Jaw Support Could Reduce TMJ Pain

Posted on 7/23/2020 by Palisades Surgical Arts
How Jaw Support Could Reduce TMJ PainWhen it comes to suffering with the symptoms and effects of TMJ, most dental patients are willing to try just about anything to find even the slightest bit of relief. That is because this can be one of the most painful oral conditions that exists, due to the fact the area which is most affected contains some of the deepest and highly sensitive nerves in the body. Many patients often describe their pain as crippling. But what many times surprises these folks is that sometimes the simplest techniques and devices can offer some of the greatest relief. For the purpose of this post, we want to take a few moments to discuss a few of the possible benefits to using a jaw support device such us a mouthguard or other similar dental appliance which we may even be able to custom fit to your specific mold.

Reduction in Stress on the Muscles

These mouthpieces can do wonders for several symptoms associated with TMJ, but we want to focus mainly on how it reduces the pressure on the muscles, allowing the patient to relax their jaws and ease up on clenching. When the mouthguard is in, it prevents teeth on teeth contact and impactful tension.

Prevention of Night Grinding

Since most people who grind their teeth while they sleep may not even realize it, except for the fact that they wake up in pain the next morning, wearing one of these pieces to bed can drastically reduce the occurrence of bruxism while they slumber.

If you think that jaw support might be beneficial to you in your battle with TMJ, then stop by our office to speak with one of our helpful staff members. You can also just give us a call if it is more convenient for you.
