Nightguards, Bite Splints and TMJ Therapy

Many patients grind or clench their teeth, some without knowing it.

The jaw joint and surrounding muscles can undergo much stress or injury due to clenching/grinding and a multitude of other causes. Symptoms can include headaches, difficulty opening the mouth, sore or clicking jaw joints, earaches, and sensitive teeth.

Oftentimes a custom-made acrylic splint (nightguard) will help alleviate these symptoms. Other alternatives, such as physiotherapy or dental adjustments, may also be necessary.
