The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jawbone to your skull and acts like a sliding hinge. But TMJ disorder can present itself as jaw, neck, facial, and head pain. The team at Dental Care Marlboro can help patients with their TMJ issues.
The most common treatment for TMJ is a bite splint (night guard), which is a removable appliance custom-fitted to your upper or lower teeth. By wearing a bite splint, patients who clench or grind their teeth at night can protect their teeth, as well as reduce any related pain to the jaw, head, neck, or facial face.
