We Offer Effective Treatment for Your TMJ Disorder

There are a variety of reasons for problems with your TMJ. It can be a result of stress, injury to your jaw, arthritis, or alignment issues in your mouth. One of the more common solutions to a TMJ disorder is a customized oral appliance that you wear to alleviate your discomfort. This offers you unique benefits such as:

  • Improved Jaw Function – Wearing a splint reduces your ability to grind your teeth or clench your jaw. As a result, you are healing your jaw and improving its natural function.
  • Pain Relief – When you stop grinding or clenching your teeth, you won’t experience as much muscle tension. Plus, you’ll avoid cracking or chipping your teeth as a result of these habits.
  • Customized Fit – We create a TMJ splint designed uniquely for you. Many products you buy in the store won’t fit properly or effectively relieve your pain.

We may recommend other treatments as well. For example, if you have misaligned teeth, we may recommend our clear aligner treatment with ClearCorrect. You also may benefit from restorative procedures such as a dental crown to adjust your bite. We’ll work with you on the best treatments for your unique needs.

If you are dealing with jaw pain, headaches, neck and shoulder tension, popping sounds when you bite or chew, and sensitive teeth, you are showing signs of a TMJ disorder. If you’re a new patient, call 510-983-7444 for TMJ treatment in Oakland. Existing patients can call 510-240-7264. You can  also request an appointment online. We’re open on Saturdays!

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

TMJ problems typically won’t go away without treatment. TMJ pain is usually caused when the joints in your jaw become inflamed. This commonly occurs because of two habits that put your jaw under pressure: clenching and teeth grinding. We can make a custom mouthguard for you that will stop these behaviors so that your jaw can heal.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

There is no standard length for TMJ treatment. It depends on many factors, including the severity of your symptoms. Since a mouthguard not only relieves TMJ pain but also prevents damage to teeth caused by grinding, many patients make it a permanent addition to their bedtime routine.

What are the symptoms of a TMJ disorder?

A TMJ (or temporomandibular joint) disorder may include symptoms such as teeth grinding, popping sounds when you chew or bite, headaches or earaches, difficulty opening your mouth wide, or jaw pain. We’ll use a CBCT scan to confirm your diagnosis of this disorder, so we can properly move forward with treatment.
