TMJ (also known as the Temporal Mandibular Joint) disorder therapy is the treatment of resulting symptoms which can be painful and cause tension and an imbalance of the way the teeth bite together. Long term, this can have a negative impact on health leading to the discomfort of the jaw joints and muscles. The pressure of malocclusion (misaligned bite) can cause wear to the teeth over a period of time, increasing the risk of tooth fracture.
At Staplehurst Dental Practice, we can alleviate the uncomfortable symptoms of TMJ disorder, teeth grinding and tooth wear by providing a custom-made splint, reducing the need for more extensive and expensive dental treatment in the long term.
Sometimes these are referred to as ‘night guards’, but a well-adjusted splint is much more than that and requires very careful fitting and adjusting by an experienced dentist. Incorrectly fitted splints can cause damage and harm.
