If you are suffering from the symptoms of TMJ disorder, or TMD, come see Dr. Shepherd DMD right away. He can relieve the symptoms of your TMD.
Splints or Night Guards
TMJ splints or night guards are custom-made just for you. They hold your jaw in a way that allows the strained muscles to relax. Splints and night guards will give the muscles of your jaw a break so that you will have less TMJ symptoms. These appliances are portable and easy to use.
Adjusting the Bite
Dr. Shepherd DMD could potentially adjust your current bite with dental fixtures like dental crowns. It could be an improper bite that is causing all of your discomfort, so if your bite is readjusted, your jaw will work properly without any further discomfort.
