A TMJ disorder (TMD) can cause jaw pain and many other unpleasant symptoms, including headaches. Fortunately, Dr. Steven Airey can treat TMDs with a custom bite guard that prevents you from grinding or clenching your teeth, which can aggravate a TMD.
Take this quiz to see if you should get a TMJ assessment in our Boone, NC dentist office. If an assessment indicates you have a TMD, Dr. Airey will fit you for a custom bite guard that should relieve your symptoms. He’ll also discuss making modifications to your bite for a more lasting TMJ solution.
