Enjoy Life More With TMJ Therapy

You probably don’t think much about your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) until they begin to hurt. These jaw joints allow you to open and close your mouth for everyday activities like talking, eating, laughing, and yawning. When they become irritated or inflamed, it can mean a great deal of pain for you. Researchers aren’t certain of all the causes of TMJ, but do know that teeth grinding is both a cause and a symptom of TMJ problems.

Fortunately, the team at Kutsch Dentistry has your solution. Using a professionally made TMJ appliance, we can help your jaw feel better. You’ll wear it at night while you sleep. It will:

  • Gently move your lower jaw forward just a bit
  • Reduce tension on your TMJs so they can begin to heal
  • Prevent teeth grinding, so you’ll avoid damage to your enamel
  • Lessen tension headaches, as teeth grinding is often a cause of them
