Say Goodbye to TMJ Pain & Jaw Tenderness

You probably don’t put much thought into your jaw joints when everything is working normally. When they become inflamed, however, you can suffer a great deal. When these temporomandibular joints (TMJs) are aching, that may be all you think about. Each time you open and close your mouth may create additional pain.  Researchers aren’t certain of all the causes behind TMJ disorder, but they do know that teeth grinding is both a cause and symptom of it.

That’s why our treatment focuses on keeping your teeth apart. Dr. Bickler will use a deprogrammer for precise diagnosis of your problem. Then, he will have a custom TMJ night guard made. It will:

  • Move your lower jaw gently forward
  • Relieve tension on your TMJs so they can begin to heal
  • Keep you from grinding your teeth while sleeping, helping you avoid the need for restorative dentistry to repair the damage

In addition, since teeth grinding can cause headaches, less teeth grinding often means fewer and less severe headaches.

Tired of jaw pain? Call Bickler Dentistry today at 503-647-4645 to find out what our Salem TMJ treatment can do for you. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment/Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

TMJ problems typically won’t go away without treatment. TMJ pain is usually caused when the joints in your jaw become inflamed. This commonly occurs because of two habits that put your jaw under pressure: clenching and teeth grinding. We can make a custom mouthguard for you that will stop these behaviors so that your jaw can heal.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

You may need ongoing treatment for a TMJ disorder. Fortunately, by wearing a simple appliance, you can prevent teeth grinding, a common cause of TMJ problems. We have helped many patients find the solution to this painful problem. Today they are enjoying their lives with fewer headaches and earaches and less jaw pain and jaw stiffness.

Will insurance pay for my TMJ treatment?

Your insurance may pay for a portion of the cost of your TMJ treatment. We recommend you check with your carrier to determine what they will and won’t cover. We’ll work with your insurance to maximize your benefits and ensure that your out-of-pocket cost is minimal. Our team wants you to get the help you need to feel better.
