Our TMJ Treatment Options

Dr. John Moore is a TMJ specialist. There are many ways for him to treat your TMJ disorder and alleviate your symptoms, so you can get back to living a pain-free life.

  • 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 teeth grinding, which sometimes cause TMJ disorder or can be a symptom of TMJ disorder. We also have night guards for treating sleep apnea.
  • Occlusal adjustments and orthodontic work to bring your bite in 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.

TMJ Disorder Explained

Open and close your mouth. You will feel motion in your temporomandibular joint where your jawbone meets your cheekbone. This joint acts as a hinge every time you speak, chew food, or even yawn.

It’s not uncommon for this joint to become misaligned or irritated, or for you to strain the surrounding muscles. More than 10 million Americans are thought to suffer from TMJ disorder, which can include debilitating pain from headaches and migraines.
