About Temporomandibular Joint Disorders

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders are a common condition which affects the temporomandibular joint (responsible for attaching your lower jaw to the skull). Many patients experience discomfort, painful symptoms and even damage due to unconscious clenching and grinding. Left untreated, TMJ can lead to extensive damage to the smile, leading to a range of other complications.

Our TMJ treatment at Rochelle Dental Care

At Rochelle Dental Care, we are proud to offer TMJ oral appliances which can be worn to reduce the damage and symptoms caused by TMJ. Each TMJ mouthguard is custom-made for each patient, ensuring maximum comfort and protection. Patients only have to wear the oral appliance while sleeping and many report no issues at all with comfort. The oral appliance works by alleviating pressure on the jaw joints while also limiting clenching and grinding, allowing the joints and muscles to relax.
