If you experience pain, tightness, or a clicking that originates in your jaw, especially after sleeping, you aren’t alone. Many Americans suffer from these symptoms. This condition can affect several different parts of your jaw joint, which is called the temporomandibular joint, as well as your neck and head.
If you are experiencing this type of pain, you may have Temporomandibular Disorder or TMD. The pain can be debilitating as you attempt to go about your daily activities.

Custom Night Guards
In many cases, TMJ/TMD pain is caused by clenching and grinding teeth during the night. Nighttime grinding is common and almost impossible to stop on your own! Fortunately, our custom night guards can help reduce the side effects of teeth grinding and clenching.
By customizing your night guard, we can be sure that the final product will fit well and fully protect your teeth. When teeth are grinding against the night guard instead of each other, it can reduce jaw pain as well as damage to your teeth.
While it might be most well-known for its ability to tighten and smooth skin, Botox can also serve as a solution to TMJ/TMD pain. With a simple, non-surgical Botox procedure, we can reduce or eliminate your jaw pain.
By injecting Botox into the muscles of the jaw, we can reduce the mobility of those muscles, which can greatly reduce the amount—and severity—of clenching and grinding. The majority of people experience TMJ/TMD relief only a few days after a Botox treatment.
If you are experiencing a severe case of TMJ/TMD pain, we can also refer you to a specialist, where you can receive the more intensive care that you need.
