  • Help you get a better night’s rest
  • Stop daily headaches or migraines from interfering with your life

Why You’re Dealing With TMJ Or Teeth Grinding Issues

Your jaw joints are called temporomandibular joints, or TMJ. Stress or pressure on your jaw can lead to temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMD.

TMD is not your fault. Oral or facial injuries could lead to TMD, as well as arthritis or an uneven bite. TMD can cause you to grind your teeth at night or simply tighten your jaw during the day, which leads to headaches, exhaustion, and further dental issues. If you feel or hear clicking or popping when you move your jaw, you are likely dealing with TMD.

With a customized oral appliance from Dr. Jerry Farrell, you can rest easier at night and feel much better during the day. And if your TMJ-related pain is due to an uneven bite, Dr. Farrell can restore your bite and relieve your pain with orthodontics.
