Temporal Mandibular Joint Splint (TMJ SPlint)
TMJ Splint: A Beacon of Relief in Jaw Harmony
Temporal Mandibular Joint Disorders (TMD) can be a source of persistent discomfort, often impacting daily activities and overall quality of life. At the core of therapeutic interventions for TMD lies the TMJ Splint – a meticulously designed appliance that aids in repositioning the jaw, alleviating pain, and ensuring smooth jaw function. At DentAssos, our approach to TMJ Splint therapy merges advanced diagnostics with patient-centered care.
Key Advantages of TMJ Splint Therapy:
Pain Alleviation: The primary benefit of a TMJ splint is the relief it offers from the chronic pain often associated with TMD, making daily activities like chewing and speaking more comfortable.
Preventing Teeth Grinding: For those who involuntarily grind their teeth (bruxism), a TMJ splint acts as a protective layer, preventing tooth wear and potential damage.
Jaw Repositioning: The splint assists in positioning the jaw in a more anatomically correct and comfortable position, which can be pivotal in treating the underlying causes of TMD.
Decreased Joint Noise: Many patients report a reduction in the clicking or popping sounds in their jaw joint after using a TMJ splint.
Improved Sleep: By addressing discomfort and preventing nighttime teeth grinding, the splint often contributes to better sleep patterns.
Customized Fit: Every TMJ splint is tailored to the individual’s mouth structure, ensuring optimal comfort and therapeutic effectiveness.
