Treatment for TMJ Disorder

TMJ disorder is a condition that affects the temporomandibular joint, which is the joint that connects the jaw to the skull. TMJ disorder limits the movement of the jaw and is usually accompanied by pain and discomfort. The common symptoms of TMJ disorder include chronic facial pain, tension, headaches, clicking, popping, or locking of the jaw when the mouth is opened or closed. We can prescribe a nightguard that will combat the side effects. In certain situations, our team will refer you to a TMJ specialist or physiotherapist if it is necessary.

The Types of Mouthguards We Offer

At our office, we provide a wide range of different mouthguards that are made for different activities. If you are someone who grinds their teeth at night, then we will recommend a nightguard for you. On the other hand, athletes require a sports guard in order to protect their teeth during play. Mouthguards can be made for a variety of different circumstances. They can also be made to fit your unique teeth in order to provide proper and comprehensive protection. Some of the different types of mouthguards we provide at our office include:

Sport Guards

Our dental professionals recommend that athletes wear a sports guard during play and contact games in order to protect their teeth from damage.


Dayguards are made to wear throughout the day to prevent tooth damage for those who grind and clench their teeth regularly. These devices are similar to a clear retainer.


Nightguards are thicker devices that help prevent wear on the teeth and relax your facial muscles during sleep.

Sleep Apnea Appliances

With the help of your family doctor, a sleep apnea test can be completed to ensure that the device is necessary.
