Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) misalignment

If you’re experiencing jaw pain, headaches, or earaches, you might be suffering from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) misalignment. Your doctor may recommend a night guard to relieve your symptoms.

A night guard is a device that is worn at night to prevent teeth grinding and the associated pain. Using a night guard is a good way to get relief from TMJ symptoms, but only a dentist can properly fit it for you.

Night Guards comes in three different types. They can be occlusal splints, stabilization splints, and bite splints. Each type can be customized to fit your mouth and the type of teeth you have.

Occlusal splints are removable devices that provide 4mm of separation between your upper and lower teeth. Some occlusal splints are designed to reduce the wear on your teeth and help you chew better. These splints are typically recommended for six to eight months but are often used for a year or more.
