Keep Jaw Pain from Interfering with Your Life
Is Bruxism Aggravating your Muscles and Jaw Joints?

You’re probably noticing the symptoms mentioned above or even radiating pain in your neck, shoulders, and back. If you do have bruxism, it is most likely due to an imbalance between your teeth, muscles, and jaw joints.

The good news is that our experienced dentists are trained in bruxism and TMJ treatment in Florence, SC.

Do You Need Treatment?
Restore Harmony to your Muscles, Joints, and Teeth
It’s our goal to find the source of your symptoms so we can determine the most ideal way to restore harmony between your muscles, joints, and teeth. Our TMJ treatment in Florence, SC involves comprehensive diagnostics and evaluation to pinpoint where your pain is developing from and to provide personalized treatment.
Sometimes, teeth grinding and clenching is a symptom of a misaligned or dislocated temporomandibular joint, known as TMJ disorder. We’ll create a custom oral appliance you can wear at night that will prevent your teeth from coming together. This will resolve bruxism symptoms, help your joints find a proper equilibrium, and let your facial muscles rest and heal.
Teeth grinding and clenching and TMJ disorder may be attributed to severely crooked teeth. When this is the case, we recommend orthodontic treatment like Invisalign to straighten the teeth and restore proper occlusion. With teeth coming together properly, there is no need for the joints or muscles to stress in an attempt to restore balance. Similarly, aligned teeth often resolve grinding and clenching symptoms, too.
