& Stop Teeth Grinding

TMJ dysfunction, also known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction, occurs when the two joints that attach either side of your jawbone to your skull aren’t functioning properly. For patients with more severe forms of TMD, this can cause countless issues, including teeth grinding, lockjaw, and popping or clicking when you open or close your mouth. To help improve your day-to-day life and reduce your pain from this condition, we offer customized TMJ therapy in our South Portland, ME dental office.
