Wearing An Oral Appliance To Address Dental Discomfort

If you are experiencing dental discomfort, a custom oral appliance can prove effective at addressing the matter. At our Houston, TX dental office, we can craft a custom guard to help people who are struggling to put a stop to problems linked to TMJ dysfunction. If you have trouble moving your jaw, feel persistent soreness and sensitivity in the joints, or struggle with chronic headaches, an appliance can reduce stress, and offer relief! For those who have pain that can be traced back to bruxism, a guard can keep their teeth safe while also addressing the stress they are putting on their teeth and jaw. We should note that thanks to TruDenta, we can make sure issues with headaches are fully understood, and properly addressed.

Using A Special Guard To Stop Bruxism

Nightly teeth grinding can create more problems than just discomfort. On top of causing you to wake up with sore, sensitive teeth, bruxism can wear down your enamel and cause serious problems with chipping and cracking. It is important to address this matter before your teeth require restorative dental work – fortunately, we can help by providing you with a custom guard to wear while you sleep! When the guard is in place, it prevents you from clenching or grinding your teeth. Correcting this problem allows you to avoid damages that make it necessary to place dental crowns on teeth that are chipped or cracked.

Addressing TMJ Discomfort With A Custom Appliance

If you have daily pain concentrated in your face, head, and neck, you may have a problem with TMJ dysfunction. The issue is rooted in excess stress or physical damage to your jaw, and it can become a constant concern. We can design an appliance for you to wear at night that will keep your jaw in a more relaxed position while you sleep. Relieving stress can reduce the problems you are having, and make it easier for you to bite, speak, chew, and laugh.

Taking Additional Steps To Address Headaches

Our practice has the ability to thoroughly study your problems with ongoing headaches, and find the root of your issue. With TruDenta, we can determine why you have been suffering from headaches and migraines, and make sure we respond to the cause. Corrective therapy is sometimes recommended to retrain the movement of your muscles in your face and jaw, so you are creating less stress for yourself. This can also involve treatment to change the way you bite.
