TMJ & Bruxism

Having headaches can be a symptom of TMJ disorders. To determine whether that is the case, we will need to evaluate you. If your symptoms are due to TMJ, we will provide treatment options to help.

While teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is very common among adults, it can cause serious damage to your teeth and jaw joints. If you wake up with sore muscles or you have noticed that you clench or grind your teeth, we can make a night guard to help protect your teeth.
