Joint problems or disorders

The pathology of the temporo-mandibular joint can severely affect the quality of life of  a patient.  Some headaches, neck or ear pain, muscle spasms, limited mouth opening, etc can be related to anatomical or functional changes of the joints of the mouth.

The joint disease presents with joint sounds like clicks and even blocking the jaw, unable to open or close the patient's mouth, which generates a great concern.

Often the best treatment for TMJ is a bite splint  also known as mouthguard or night guard that will prevent further problems.

We have a broad experience treating patients that have this as their sole problem and also use this technology to prevent tooth wear and fractures.
