Discover Relief With a Custom Oral Device

Even though you may be suffering from TMJ pain, you may not know exactly what it is. Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are located on either side of your head. For reasons not fully understood, these complex joints can become irritated and inflamed, creating a great deal of pain. Even simple acts like talking and eating can cause TMJ sufferers shooting pain in the area of their jaw, face, and ears.

However, Drs. Felton and Patel can help. With the aid of custom night guards, we’ve allowed many patients to enjoy freedom from TMJ discomfort after they had given up hope. Your new oral appliance will fit comfortably in your mouth while you sleep. It will move your lower jaw forward just a bit to ease the tension on your TMJ. Although the action is slight, it’s enough to help your jaw relax.

Your jaw will feel better and you won’t wince in pain every time you laugh, talk, or chew. The night guard will also help eliminate teeth grinding while you sleep (which many people do without even knowing it). Less teeth grinding means less damage to your tooth enamel and can even mean fewer and less intense headaches.

TMJ treatment from Walter D. Felton, DDS can put an end to jaw pain and help you feel better. Call us today at 804-717-2099 to schedule your appointment. Or request an appointment online if it’s more convenient. We are a division of Central Virginia Dental Care.
