Dr. John Moore is a TMJ (temporomandibular joint) pain specialist. There are many ways for him to treat you and alleviate your symptoms so you can get back to living a pain-free life. Your options may include:
- Custom splints and mouthguards to realign your jaw. This will allow your muscles to relax while you sleep and protect your teeth from the effects of bruxism (teeth grinding), which sometimes causes TMJ disorder or can be a symptom of it.
- Occlusal adjustments and orthodontic work to bring your bite into proper alignment. A bad bite can lead to TMJ disorder because your jaw must regularly shift out of position when you chew. This same strain repeated several times a day could be at the root of your TMJ pain.
