Feel Better With a Custom Mouthguard
Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are located on either side of your head. They allow your jaw to open so you can eat, yawn, and talk. However, when these complex joints get inflamed or irritated, you can experience significant pain when opening and closing your mouth.
The good news is that Sierra Dental Care can custom-fit you with a mouthguard to eliminate your discomfort. Our mouthguard will exert gentle pressure on your lower jaw to push it forward while you sleep.
This slight action is enough to ease the stress on your TMJ and help it relax. Your jaw will feel better, so it will be easier to move your mouth without experiencing pain and annoying popping.
Plus, the mouthguard will prevent teeth grinding that can damage your teeth. You’ll protect your tooth enamel and help avoid future restorative dental work. And since teeth grinding is a major source of both tension and migraine headaches, you may have fewer and less intense headaches as well.
