Teeth Grinding and TMJ
The Temporomandibular Joint, or TMJ as most people know it as, is one of the most complicated joints of the body. Having two different types of movement allows this joint to give us the ability to chew and speak effectively. However, just like every other joint in the body, if it is injured from excessive use or other type of injury this can lead to a joint disorder called Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. TMD can be a debilitating process that can affect your day to day activities such as speaking and eating. Lemay Family Dentistry can be your first step to treating TMD with a prescribed and custom fabricated oral appliance.
