How We Can Help with TMJ Pain
The TMJ can develop issues due to stress, injury, arthritis, or even an unbalanced bite, creating muscle tension and pain in the jaw that can easily radiate throughout the entire head and neck. To help with this, Dr. Witek can align the bite and provide an oral appliance that a patient wears to bed. This gently places the jaw into a more natural position, allowing overworked muscles to finally relax and heal. The appliance also protects the teeth from nighttime grinding. Over time, the jaw will adapt to this new position, enabling a patient to wake up and go throughout their day without experiencing any pain.
