TMJ Grinding teeth

Facial Signs and Symptoms

  • Tight jaw muscles

  • Jaw discomfort

  • Frequent headaches

  • Clenching or grinding

  • Sensitive teeth

A dentist or doctor should access your symptoms and develop a course of treatment. Some treatment options you may be presented with include but not limited to, temporary devices such as a night guard, OTC guard, a chin strap, Botox, and massage. In our experience, combining muscular oral therapy with the prescribed medical or dental recommendations, significantly improves the long-term stability. In some cases, long term consequences such as needing gum grafts for recession chronic pain, arthritis in the joints, root canals & crowns, or broken teeth. 

Talk to your dentist to see if myofunctional therapy may be the key to long term healing of facial issues.
