Jaw pain and TMD are concerns that we are asked about quite often with regards to our dental devices. Whenever you are changing the position of the jaw there is the potential for these issues. Which is why our office is very knowledgeable in both dental sleep AND TMD.
There are steps we take to ensure the comfort and care of our patients. Each of our devices is customized and set with specific measurements from your jaw. And it is advanced slowly. Doing this will put as little strain on the jaw as possible, and greatly reduce the possibly that you will experience any discomfort. Along with these precautions, every time a patient returns for their follow up appointments the jaw and joint are examined and measurements are taken to track progress and catch any issues before they arise.
