Do you grind or clench your teeth? Do you experience jaw pain or headaches?
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ, TMJD or TMD) involves conditions affecting the temporomandibular joint, jaw muscles and nerves on one or both sides of the head that result in jaw, face, and head and neck pain. Bruxism (teeth grinding or clenching) can cause tooth loss, headaches, jaw pain and many more symptoms. Treatment of TMJ bruxism is essential to prevent further damage to your teeth and jaw.
At Bronxville Dental we will diagnose your bruxism and tmj problems and prescribe appropriate treatment which often involves fitting for a protective teeth mouth guard to prevent damage from teeth grinding.
