If you have a TMJ disorder, that means your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) have become inflamed. It can happen due to injury, arthritis, or teeth grinding. Dr. Rasmussen can create a custom bite guard that acts as a cushion between your teeth. This gives your jaw a chance to heal, which reduces your painful TMJ symptoms.

You’ll gain several benefits from having a bite guard:

  • Customized Comfort – Unlike store-bought mouthguards, a custom bite guard is tailored to fit your unique bite and jaw structure. It ensures optimal comfort and improved effectiveness for TMJ relief.
  • Pain Relief – The primary goal of a bite guard is to reduce the pressure and stress on your TMJs. You will wear your bite guard while you sleep, which is the most common time for teeth grinding or clenching. Your joint will have a chance to rest, reducing painful symptoms.
  • Reduced Dental Damage – A TMJ disorder often involves teeth grinding or clenching. It can lead to cracked, chipped, or even dislodged teeth. Your bite guard will protect your teeth and reduce harmful wear-and-tear.

Treatment for your TMJ problems may also include orthodontics with clear aligners. A misaligned bite is a common cause of the disorder. Your dentist will also repair any damaged teeth with restorative dental care.
