Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is responsible for opening and closing the mouth. You rely on the joint to comfortably eat, speak, and yawn. Even if you do not realize it, that joint is essential in you going about your day-to-day life. However, problems can occur in that joint, which make it painful to chew and talk, and this can cause some serious problems. In addition to pain in the jaw, patients also report experiencing locking of the jaw, popping noises when opening or closing the jaw, and facial pain. If you develop these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our expert in TMJ appliances in Glendale right away.
All the appliances we offer our patients are FDA-approved. That means they have been tested to perform as stated and provide reliable results. Your mouth guard will be custom built just for you so that it will fit perfectly over your teeth. Some mouthpieces can be purchased online, but these can be sketchy. If a mouthpiece does not fit right, it will not provide the results you are looking for. Only trust an oral appliance that was given to you by a professional. With a reliable appliance, you will be able to eat and speak just like you used to.
