Teeth Grinding and TMJ Treatment in Danville, IL

Are you in pain? A variety of pains that manifest in and near the jaw and face can be associated with just a couple different problems. Our team at Advanced Smile Arts has the technology and the knowledge to help eliminate your pain. Below you will find information on a few different problems that may occur and our solutions to them. Please feel free to contact our Danville, IL dental office with any questions or concerns you may have.

TMJ Pain Treatment

If you are experiencing discomfort due to TMJ dysfunction, we can help. TMJ dysfunction, also known as TMD, is characterized by pain or discomfort associated with the jaw joint. It sometimes manifests as jaw pain, neck pain, earaches, facial pain, lockjaw, and more. TMD can be caused by a variety of factors, including stress or injury to the jaw joint. Many people live with mild, undiagnosed TMJ dysfunction, but it can become debilitating if it is severe. Fortunately, we can help you get the care you need.

We can treat most cases of TMD right here in our office. We offer specialized oral appliances that adjust the position of your jaw. This new position is calculated to decrease the stress on the jaw and alleviate discomfort. Come into our office for a full TMJ evaluation to determine your needs. Talk to Dr. Fuesting about TMJ treatment today.

Migraine and Headache Solutions
Did you know that TMJ dysfunction can also cause headaches and migraines? If you are experiencing regular, unexplained head pain, TMD may be the culprit. We can offer you a migraine and headache relief using an NTI appliance. Some patients experience immediate relief with this treatment, while others adjust over a couple weeks. Regardless of your situation, we will work with you to help you feel more comfortable.

Bruxism Solutions
Bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching) is also associated with TMJ pain. It can create many of the symptoms associated with TMD. However, it also causes damage to your teeth due to the increased, unnecessary pressure from the grinding and clenching. We offer nightguards to alleviate grinding and clenching and to protect your teeth from harm.  This neurological condition is common in children, but it sometimes persists into adulthood.

Snoring Solutions
We can also use our oral appliance technology to help your or your partner’s snoring problem. If you are kept awake at night due to regular, annoying snoring noises, we can help. Get the quality sleep you need by employing one our specially designed night guards. These guards will alleviate your or your partner’s snoring and allow you to get the rest you need.
