Stop TMJ Pain & Feel Better Soon
Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are located on either side of your head and make it possible to open and close your mouth. If you’ve experienced TMJ disorder (TMD) and the associated pain, then you know it’s no fun. When these joints become irritated and inflamed, everyday activities like talking, eating, and yawning can trigger intense pain in your jaw.Read Transcript
Dr. Marshall has given me a device that I wear as a retainer for my jaw. For the past years, my jaw has been clicking nonstop. He was saying it's pretty unique for someone my age to have that severe of clicking going on. And it was very painful every time I ate. It was just horrible. But as soon as I put it in the first day, I couldn't even make it click after wearing it for one day.
So I wear the retainer. At first I wore it all the time throughout the day and when I slept. And then after a few weeks, I'd make sure I wear it for about ... definitely when I sleep and then half of the day. It feels a lot better wearing this. I've had it for, yeah, a few months, and there's no pain whatsoever, and I don't even notice it anymore that I wear it. This thing helped immediately after I put it in. It was within a week. I can't even force myself to make any clicks or anything like that, and the pain's gone away, and it's really just made a lot better, helping me smile and stuff like that.
While researchers don’t yet fully understand what causes TMD, Smiles of Orlando Park offers you an effective means of help. We’ll make a custom mouthguard that will gently move your lower jaw forward a bit. The movement will be just enough to relieve tension on your TMJ so that your jaw feels better.
In addition, teeth grinding is a cause of, as well as a symptom of, TMJ pain. Your new mouthguard will also prevent you from grinding your teeth while sleeping. Your jaw will feel better, plus you’ll eliminate teeth grinding and help avoid damage that could require restorative dental work. You’ll also experience fewer and less intense tension and migraine headaches, as teeth grinding is a major cause of these.
