While TMJ disorder and bruxism have completely different causes, they can both be treated with our personalized nightguards. Whether it’s stress that your jaw joints cause with TMJ or teeth grinding, both problems can cause unnecessary pressure on your teeth at night. This will lead to wear and tear on your dental structure and cause numerous other issues. Thankfully, Dr. Ramon and Dr. Natalie Ortiz offer custom-made nightguards to treat TMJ and Bruxism, while protecting your teeth for the future. Read on to learn why our nightguards in Las Cruces, NM are better than alternatives and why it’s important to receive one.
TMJ disorder is a dysfunction of your jaw joints, whereas bruxism is nighttime teeth grinding, but both result in dental problems that can be prevented with our nightguards. Patients enjoy these benefits when using our nightguards for TMJ and bruxism:
You can find generic nightguards at your local drugstore, you can even find customized nightguards at other dental offices, so why are ours better? We use a digital scanner instead of physical impressions to give you a more simple, precise, and swift final product. Instead of messy and weird-feeling putty that is used to make impressions of your smile, we can easily scan your entire set of teeth in a matter of minutes to develop a higher-quality nightguard. This means that you’ll be able to enjoy all of the benefits of our oral appliances for years to come. If it sounds like you could benefit from this treatment, call our dental office today to set up a consultation.
