Bite Spint / TMJIf you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite splint will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. We custom make bite splints to fit your unique needs.
Many people suffer one or more of the following:
- Facial pain
- Difficulty in opening and closing
- Tinnitus (ringing in ear)
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome or TMJ joint disorders are medical problems related to the jaw joint. Problems in this area can cause head and neck pain, a jaw that is locked in position or difficult to open, problems biting, and popping sounds when you bite. Dr. Oppenlander will thoroughly examine your head, neck, face, and temporomandibular joints, noting the presence of TMJ signs and symptoms. A recommended bite splint will help reduce symptoms of TMJ and prevent teeth grinding at night. We are happy to custom make bite splints to fit your unique needs.
