The Temporomandibular Joint acts somewhat like a hinge, allowing your mouth to properly move and function. When a patient experiences a Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, the joint does not properly function, resulting in discomfort, pain and lack of movement. Many patients that suffer from TMJ/TMD also suffer from unconscious clenching/grinding, leading to more discomfort and in some situations even damage.
At Anchorage Dental Arts, LLC we are proud to offer mouthguards for TMJ in Anchorage. With our custom-made mouthguards, patients can experience relief from their symptoms and also help prevent additional complications from occurring. The mouthguard is worn only while sleeping, adjusting the position of the jaws, allowing the muscles and joint to properly relax.
When it comes to TMJ treatment, many patients are amazed by how quickly they experience relief. Our TMJ mouthguards make a difference within the first night, allowing patients to enjoy more of their day-to-day life.
