What does being diagnosed with TMJ have to do with your dentists at East Hills Dental Center? TMJ can often have a bite-related or dental-related component. This means you can now get relief from your TMJ through customized TMJ treatment at our office in Dickson.
Occlusal Adjustment – This is a procedure where we smooth out the tops of the molars just enough to give you a better bite. When your teeth fit together more precisely, you are less likely to grind your teeth or put undue pressure on your jaw joint.
Dental Appliances – If our dentists feel you could benefit from having a specially-constructed dental appliance such as a nightguard worn during sleep, one will be created to fit your mouth. This type of appliance keeps your lower jaw in a neutral position, alleviating the pressures and teeth grinding that often lead to TMJ pain.
