TMJ Custom Mouthguards – A Comprehensive Treatment at Gorbatov Dentistry

The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) play a crucial role in our daily lives. These vital joints, situated on both sides of the head, allow us to chew, speak, and swallow. Their functionality encompasses a complex system of muscles, ligaments, discs, and bones. Unfortunately, any complication that disrupts this intricate system may lead to a painful TMJ disorder.

Custom Mouthguards (Soft/Hard) – these non-invasive devices are a practical solution at Gorbatov Dentistry to protect your teeth from excessive grinding, safeguard your existing dental work, and alleviate symptoms of bruxism like headaches and sore jaws.

Do TMJ Mouth Guards Help?

If you've been diagnosed with a TMJ-related disorder or experience discomfort in your mouth and jaw, you may be concerned about treatment options. TMJ disorder, a condition affecting the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), is often correlated with high stress levels, resulting in migraines, tooth damage, and more. Left untreated, the problem can escalate and may require surgery. However, TMJ surgery, although an option, can be risky and costly. Therefore, non-surgical methods like mouth guards are often recommended.

How Mouthguards Can Help Relieve Your TMJ Symptoms

TMJ mouth guards, including orthotic devices, night guards, or bite splints, offer a non-invasive approach to alleviate pain and discourage damaging behaviors, such as grinding, while gently repairing a bad bite. There are two primary types of mouth guards for TMJ treatment: Night guards and splints.

Night guards, crafted from pliable and soft plastic, fit over your teeth and are worn during sleep. They prevent tooth grinding, protect against wear and tear, and allow your jaw to relax. While generic night guards are widely available, custom-fit night guards offer superior comfort and effectiveness, making them a preferred choice at our oceanfront location in Hollywood, near Hallandale Beach and Sunny Isles Beach.

Splint Therapy

Unlike mere prevention, splint therapy aims to correct the bite, making it an excellent solution for advanced TMJ cases. The primary distinction between splint therapy and night guards is that splints are worn 24/7, rather than just at night. A consultation with an experienced TMJ dentist, such as Dr. Dmitry Gorbatov, will help you determine the suitable TMJ mouth guard for your specific needs.

For many patients at Gorbatov Dentistry, TMJ mouth guards present an appealing treatment option, requiring no surgery and providing comfort and relief without medication. They may permanently fix the bite, reflecting the upscale, world-class service synonymous with Dr. Gorbatov's practice, ensuring that patients radiate confidence through their enhanced wellbeing and appearance.

If you or a loved one is dealing with TMJ-related discomfort, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with us. With over 30 years of experience in Cosmetic Dentistry and Dental Implantology, Dr. Dmitry Gorbatov is dedicated to providing transformative experiences through comprehensive treatments, like custom mouthguards for TMJ.
