Non-Surgical TMJD Treatment
Trauma or injury, bad orthodontics/dentistry, chronic tooth wear, and grinding or clenching are a few of the reasons why people suffer from jaw pain. We use a dental orthotic like a retainer to "deprogram" your jaw from the bad position it is in. The deprogrammer prevents interlocking of the teeth and therefore allows the patient’s lower jaw to gradually relax and settle into an ideal position with relation to the teeth. It is a great non-surgical option that is based on the lasted research in biologic tempomandibular joint treatment.
Patients that are successfully deprogrammed will experience an increased quality of life as a result of a more efficient bite position and may have less facial/joint pain as well as reduced incidences of worn, broken or loose teeth.
