Easily Solving Your TMJ/Teeth Grinding Problems

Dr. Rod Gleave, DMD will first examine your mouth to determine where your problems are stemming from, which could include:

  • An alignment issue in your bite (the way your upper and lower teeth fit together)
  • Issues caused by an accident or trauma to your jaw
  • Teeth grinding during the day or night, a condition known as bruxism

Any of these can cause stress on your jaw, leading to TMJ-related problems. TMJ is a short term for your temporomandibular joint. This joint connects your jaw to your skull, and it can cause daily discomfort if affected.

Dr. Rod Gleave, DMD will create a thin, comfortable, and customized oral appliance – or “orthotic” – for you to wear and rectify the problems. This plastic retainer will be worn over your lower teeth to improve your bite. After we find the most comfortable bite position, we can proceed to make it permanent with several different treatments, relieving your pain once and for all.

You’ll also save time and money on any treatments you may eventually require due to teeth grinding, which leaves your teeth vulnerable to bacteria and cracking as the enamel is worn down.
