Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) frequently occurs when the lower jaw is not in the proper position relative to the upper jaw. When the lower jaw goes back too far, this results in the protective disc becoming anteriorly displaced. Some common causes of TMJ are clenching or grinding habits, a deep dental overbite, missing teeth, trauma to the head or neck, automobile accidents, a whiplash injury, bad posture or stress on the body, or intubation procedures in hospitals. To combat the uncomfortable feelings of TMJ and to prevent any potential damage to your teeth, we are able to fabricate a custom mouth guard to fit your teeth.
