TMJ and Bruxism
Causes, Symptoms and Treatment Options
Many people suffer from pain due to the way they unconsciously contract the muscles in their jaw.
If you wake up with pain in your jaw, neck or head, there is a good chance that you may be grinding or clenching your teeth at night. This is called bruxism. It may also be referred to as TMJ.
The pain from this condition can be relieved with a variety of treatment options. At Justice Dental, we can create a custom mouthguard that you wear at night to ease the grinding. We can also simply use an injection to relax the muscle and remove the pain.
