When you wake up in the morning, do you notice headaches, jaw, or shoulder pain? Has your partner taken up residence on the sofa because of your loud snoring or strange popping or clicking noises while you sleep?
If you answer yes to either question, you may be grinding your teeth, a common sign of TMJ problems known as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).
In some cases, TMD symptoms like jaw pain can overtake your life and leave you desperate for relief. At Serene Dental of North Salt Lake, Dr. Will Bates offers treatment for TMJ pain or dysfunction using a small customized oral appliance.
