At Greeley Dental Care, our primary goal is to provide the most effective and conservative treatment possible for every situation. Oral appliances provide simple and non-invasive care for many conditions.

SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED WITH & TMJ DISORDERS AND BRUXISM

A person who suffers from bruxism causes the same amount of wear to their teeth in one night as someone who does not have a clenching and grinding habit creates in 100 nights.

There is a connection between TMJ, dysfunction, bruxism, and obstructive sleep apnea. Because sleep disorders are so common and create so many dental-related issues, we evaluate each new patient for signs of TMJ dysfunction (jaw joint issues), bruxism, (clenching and grinding), and obstructive sleep apnea.

These conditions are often related and can have a negative impact on both your oral health and your overall health.

Oral Appliance for TMJ & Bruxism

Most people grind their teeth during sleep without even realizing it. If you often wake up with a strong headache or jaw pain, you might be one of them. People who suffer from bruxism can wear their teeth almost 100 times faster than people who do not clench or grind their teeth. Custom mouthguards gently separate your upper and lower teeth and prevent damage from grinding. It also aligns your jaw properly and reduces the pressure on the teeth.
