If you are experiencing jaw pain or feel your jaw is popping or locking, you may benefit from an evaluation to determine the cause of your discomfort. If you are clinching or grinding your teeth, we may recommend a non-invasive treatment called an occlusal splint or nightguard. This splint can be worn at night to help your muscles relax.
Many people refer to jaw pain as TMJ or TMJD (temporomandibular joint disorder). If you suspect you have this condition, call us right away to schedule an exam with Dr. Bartels so you can feel like YOU again!
