Continue reading to learn more about TMJ disorders and how we can help.

TMJ Disorders

TMJ stands for "temporomandibular joint," the sliding hinge joint that connects your jawbone to your skull. If you have TMJ disorders, you may notice discomfort in your jaw joint and in the muscles that surround it and control your jaw movement. There are many causes of TMJ disorders. Your discomfort could be caused by arthritis, jaw injury, or clenching or grinding teeth at night. Sleep apnea could even be associated with TMJ disorders.

TMJ Disorders Symptoms

Symptoms of TMJ disorders vary depending on the cause of the individual’s disorder. Many people experience neck, shoulder, and jaw pain. Many people choke at night when they sleep or choke when they are eating or drinking. Some people experience restlessness at night and wake up feeling exhausted. Many patients deal with chronic headaches. These symptoms are only a few of the many reasons you should seek out TMJ treatment in Newburyport.

TMJ Disorders and Sleep Apnea Associated

TMJ disorders and sleep apnea often go hand in hand. Many of the symptoms are the same, and the result of fatigue in the morning is also common. Sleep apnea is a disorder in which a patient does not receive quality oxygen at night when they rest due to a variety of factors. When your body cannot breathe correctly, muscle fatigue can occur because you are exerting so much energy with little rest. This muscle strain can lead to aggravated TMJ disorders symptoms. Likewise, a locked jaw or jaw displacement from TMJ can lead to a blocked airway or sleep apnea.

TMJ Treatment in Newburyport

We can treat your TMJ disorders and also your sleep apnea by association. Our number one treatment method is the use of a retainer-like device. This will hold your jaw in place so you are unable to grind your teeth or clench your jaw at night. This will alleviate the symptoms of TMJ disorders and allow you to rest more deeply. Choking and snoring will be reduced, muscles will relax, breathing will improve, and discomfort and anxiety will be eliminated. Our TMJ treatment oral appliance will work to give you a better night of rest every night. It will also keep your jaw in a position that allows your airway to stay open so you do not suffer from sleep apnea, as well.

If you recognize these symptoms as something you or your spouse experiences, we can help. Don’t allow TMJ disorders to ruin your night of rest. By preventing the symptoms of TMJ disorders and sleep apnea with TMJ treatment in Newburyport, you and your spouse will be happier, healthier, and more well-rested.
