Get an Oral Appliance to Stop TMJ Pain

Dr. Gleave will create a customized oral appliance for you to wear and rectify your jaw problems. The comfortable plastic retainer will be worn over your lower teeth to improve your bite. After we find the most comfortable bite position, we can permanently alter your bite with several different treatments, relieving your pain once and for all.

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

Determine Your TMJ Causes

Before making an appliance for you, Dr. Gleave will examine your mouth to determine what is causing your problems. Possible TMJ causes include:

  • An alignment issue in your bite (the way your upper and lower teeth fit together)
  • Issues related to 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 pain. 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.

Contact Dr. Rod Gleave today at (801) 747-8531 for TMJ treatment. We welcome patients from throughout Salt Lake County, including Murray, UT and Park City, UT.
