Dental Devices for TMJD (condition affecting the temporomandibular joint) are recommended for sufferers as they are designed to stop the discomfort associated with the disorder by helping to align the teeth.
Tempomandibular Joint Disorder comes under many guises; TMJ, TMD and TMJD. It is a condition affecting the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The TMJ joins the mandible – also known as the lower jaw – to the temporal bone of the skull, by the ears.
Dental Devices for TMJD are recommended for sufferers as they are designed to stop the discomfort associated with the disorder by helping to align the teeth. A device is recommended for people of all ages who find themselves suffering with pain and discomfort regularly and can help to ease both physical and mental symptoms.
TMJD can cause intermittent or constant pain that can last for many years. Although a relatively simple device, the TMJ is effective in coordinating movements of the jaw, such as chewing and biting. You may also notice pain while talking, yawning, chewing, and even resting the mouth and jaw.
Dental devices for TMJD are designed to improve the quality of life by minimising pain and discomfort at all times. They can transform people’s lives, allowing them to speak, chew and bite without pain.
Although dental devices can cause pain, our dentist can measure you for a special mouth guard which will help to gently hold your jaw in a position that lessens the effect of TMJ.
