Relief from TMJ Disorder: Get a Night Guard in King Edward Park and Neighbouring Areas

Millcreek Dental Care offers TMJ splints for patients across Edmonton. Many patients who suffer from TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder find relief with occlusal splints. Similar to sports guards and bruxism guards, a night guard can help patients overcome the symptoms of TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) quickly and affordably.

We follow the Alberta dental fee guide!

What Is TMD?

Temporomandibular joint disorder is pain and tenderness of the jaw joint. It can be caused by jaw injuries and/or joint disease, and grinding or clenching may exacerbate the problem. Symptoms can include:

  • Pain around the ear, jaw, temples or face

  • Difficulty opening and closing mouth

  • Unusual jaw noises when chewing or opening mouth

  • Neck pain

  • Headaches

How We Can Help

An occlusal splint is worn at night and can help with your TMD. It is a clear plastic guard that fits over your teeth, meaning that you will bite against the guard rather than your teeth. We can custom-make a TMJ splint that’s fitted for your teeth, providing comfort and stability when you wear it at nighttime.

Could this be right for you? For more information about how a dentist could improve your TMJ issues, contact us today.
