Dr. Andrew Kim and our team have helped many patients get the relief they need from TMJ pain with a customized treatment plan that restores proper functioning of the jaw. Our effective and affordable therapies deliver fast results so you can enjoy a better quality of life.
LINK BETWEEN BRUXISM AND TMJ
If you have a bad habit of clenching or grinding your teeth, you have a condition known as bruxism. This habit will wear down your teeth over time, and may trigger persistent pain or jaw discomfort and cause bite misalignment. Many patients with TMJ have bruxism, so we can work to break the habit and ease tension around the jaw. Dr. Kim may recommend wearing a nightguard and performing relaxation exercises to release tension in the jaw muscles.
