Eliminate Your Migraines & TMJ Pain

TMJ, short for temporomandibular joint, is another term for your jaw joints. Because the symptoms of TMJ disorder (TMD) overlap with other afflictions, you should see a TMD-trained dentist like Dr. Juarez for a professional evaluation and diagnosis. A member of the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, she completed a 160-hour continuing education continuum that included training specifically on TMD.

Dr. Juarez will thoroughly examine your mouth and jaw before recommending a solution for your case of TMD or teeth grinding. One option is a custom-made oral appliance. You will wear it at night while you sleep to prevent your teeth from grinding, taking stress off your TMJ and allowing it to heal. We may also recommend placing dental crowns to adjust your bite.

TMJ & Teeth Grinding Solutions Will Help You Feel Better

Here are some of the most common symptoms of TMD that your custom appliance can treat:

  • Clicking or popping sounds while opening and closing your mouth
  • A jaw that gets “stuck” when you open wide
  • Frequent headaches and migraines
  • Facial, neck, and/or shoulder pain

Teeth grinding can also be a symptom or risk factor of TMD, but it can also be caused by stress, an improper bite, misaligned teeth, or sleep apnea.

Don’t put up with jaw pain and other symptoms any longer! Call Houston Uptown Dentists today at 832-463-1021 for Houston TMJ treatment. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

TMJ problems typically won’t go away without treatment. TMJ pain is usually caused when the joints in your jaw become inflamed. This commonly occurs because of two habits that put your jaw under pressure: clenching and teeth grinding. We can make a custom mouthguard for you that will stop these behaviors. Then your jaw can heal.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

There is no standard length for TMJ treatment. It depends on many factors, including the severity of your symptoms. Since a mouthguard not only relieves TMJ pain but also prevents damage to teeth caused by grinding, many patients make it a permanent addition to their bedtime routine.

Will insurance pay for my TMJ treatment?

Your insurance may pay for part of your TMJ treatment. We can help determine what your plan will and won’t cover and what your portion of the cost may be. Keep in mind that we do offer financing options to help pay for your treatment. We work with CareCredit, which has low-interest payment plans, or we can arrange in-office financing.

How do mouthguards help TMJ?

While the exact cause of TMJ disorders is unknown, many people who suffer from this painful ailment clench their jaws and/or grind their teeth. These habits, often caused or exacerbated by stress, in many cases take place while you are sleeping. Wearing a custom mouthguard at night gently positions your jaw in a way that prevents these behaviors and facilitates the healing of your TMJ.

Is TMJ causing my headaches?

It’s possible, yes. Inflammation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can lead to pain in the surrounding muscles of the head and neck, which can be misinterpreted as migraines. By wearing a mouthguard, you can alleviate the pain caused by TMJ inflammation and potentially experience relief from headaches.
