Feel Better With Our TMJ Therapy So You Can Enjoy Life More

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) are complex joints that are positioned on either side of your head to allow your jaw to move. When they are working properly, you probably don’t think much about them. However, when irritated or inflamed, they can cause you a significant amount of pain when opening and closing your mouth. Researchers are not yet sure of all the causes behind TMJ pain. However, they do know that teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) is both a cause of and a symptom of TMJ disorder.

A simple TMJ appliance from Alex Martin, DDS can change all that. It will:

  • Fit comfortably in your mouth
  • Be worn while sleeping
  • Relieve tension on your TMJs, so they can begin to heal
  • Help eliminate bruxism, which is a leading cause of tension headaches and tooth enamel damage

Soon, your jaw will feel better, and it will be easier to open and close your mouth for talking, eating, and yawning.

Less teeth grinding means fewer and less intense headaches. Plus, you may avoid restorative dentistry to repair your damaged teeth. Both your jaw and your head will feel better.

If you need TMJ treatment in Scottsdale, call Alex Martin, DDS today at 480-660-4225 to schedule an appointment. You can also make an appointment online.

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.

Will insurance pay for my TMJ treatment?

Your insurance may pay for a portion of the cost of your TMJ treatment. We recommend you check with your carrier to determine what they will and won’t cover. We’ll work with your insurance to maximize your benefits and ensure that your out-of-pocket cost is minimal. Our team wants you to get the help you need to feel better.
