Some patients today suffer from various forms of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder that can affect the facial muscles that help the jaw move up and down, causing muscle spasms. One of the more common side effects of a TMJ disorder is the subconscious grinding and clenching of teeth, where it is natural for the patient to close their jaw where the top and bottom teeth are in contact with each other for a long time in a manner that can chip and whittle down the enamel.
SmilePerfectors is here to extend a helping hand to anyone living with a TMJ disorder and can provide restorative and preventive TMJ treatments in Tysons Corner and any of our other locations, we can help keep your teeth healthy and strong. Our practice offers a variety of other TMJ treatments, including non-surgical options that you can learn more about by setting up a consultation with one of our dentists.
Our dentists will examine and observe how your jaw closes to gauge the level of your disorder, as well as check the condition of your teeth to see what treatment can best assist you. As one of its preventive measures, SmilePerfectors can help reduce the strain your teeth experience when they grind against each other by getting you fitted with a Nightguard™. Nightguards prevent your top and bottom sets of teeth from touching each other while you sleep, so teeth deterioration from teeth grinding is kept to an absolute minimum.
We can also design teeth guards (Nightguards) that can prevent teeth grinding in other situations, such as for sporting events, and in some cases while using braces. We can help design a guard that can help keep your teeth aligned following the removal of your braces, but only in partnership with your orthodontist.
