Getting Treated For Your TMD
TMD treatments can range in complication from surgeries to simple oral appliances. At Winnipeg Square Dental, we offer night guards to help treat the symptoms of TMD, which are successful in a large number of cases!
Night guards are small oral appliances that you wear when sleeping. They help keep your jaw in a neutral position that will relax your muscles and prevent teeth grinding and clenching that can make TMD pain worse. If you want, you can continue to wear your night guard during the day, a good option for patients experiencing a high amount of pain.
If you come to Winnipeg Square Dental for TMD treatment, we’ll start with a full oral exam. We want to be sure that we rule out any other causes of your pain, such as an abscess, infection, or impacted wisdom tooth. Once we know for sure that there aren’t any other physical symptoms causing your pain, we’ll help set you up with a night guard.
Using an impression of your mouth, our dental lab will build a night guard that is specially designed for your teeth. We’ll have it back within a few weeks, and then you’ll be on your way to better sleep!
If for any reason your night guard doesn’t help resolve your symptoms, we’ll refer you to someone in our network of specialists that can further investigate your TMD.
Don’t wait for your nights to get more restful – we can help you feel better with just one simple oral appliance for TMJ treatment!
