About Temporomandibular Joint Disorders
The temporomandibular joints are the two joints on either side of the face that connect the jawbone to the skull. The temporomandibular joints allow us to properly open/close our mouths, bite, chew, speak, and so much more! When the temporomandibular joints are not functioning properly it can lead to discomfort, pain and various other complications.
El Segundo TMJ/TMD Mouthguards
At Dr. Smile, our TMJ mouth guards in El Segundo are designed to prevent the symptoms, discomfort, and damage often associated with temporomandibular joint disorders. The mouthguard is worn at night and holds the mouth in a position allowing the muscles and joints to relax.
Benefits of TMJ Treatment
When it comes to treating TMJ, there are many benefits, however, the most notable is probably the reduced risk of damage, discomfort, and pain that patients typically experience. Left untreated, TMJ/TMD typically becomes worse, having a big impact on the patient’s life.
