TMD/TMJ Devices in Coquitlam

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) or temporomandibular disorders (TMD) can cause a lot of TMJ, jaw, and facial pain. To reduce this pain, medications, mouth guards, physical therapy, and jaw surgery are all options, but mouth guards are where Coquitlam City Dentist can help you out! Get started by speaking to your doctor and dentist, who can guide you in the right direction for treatment.

Symptoms of TMD

If you experience a lot of pain in your jaw joints and in the sides of your face, you might have a temporomandibular disorder. Other symptoms include painful popping and clicking when you move your jaw, frequent headaches, jaw stiffness, and difficulty chewing. Bring up your symptoms with your dentist at your next appointment to begin assessment and treatment plans.

Treating TMD with Mouthguards

Using mouthguards or nightguards can help reduce pain associated with temporomandibular disorders by helping manage habits such as teeth grinding. The mouthguard will simply protect your teeth and soften your bite without moving around your teeth. If additional pain should occur, follow up with your dentist, and they can continue to make adjustments to find the right solution.
