TMJ Splints

If you suffer from chronic jaw pain, you may be a good candidate for TMJ splints. Campbell Station Dentistry offers a variety of splints to help relieve TMJ pain and tension headaches.

We have a wide selection of splints to choose from, so you can find the perfect fit for your needs.

What are TMJ Splints and What Do They Do?

TMJ splints are small appliances that rest between the upper and lower teeth. TMJ splints work by applying pressure to the joints of the jaw, helping to reduce tension in the muscles and relieve pain.

When you wear a TMJ splint, it helps keep your jaw slightly open, allowing for more comfortable movement. This can lead to reduced muscle spasms, headaches, and facial pain.

The appliance stabilizes your bite and helps prevent you from grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw while sleeping. With regular use, TMJ splints can help relieve chronic pain associated with TMJ dysfunction.

What Are the Benefits of Wearing a TMJ Splint?

The most obvious benefit of wearing a splint is that it helps relieve painful symptoms caused by temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.

Regular use of a TMJ splint can also help prevent further damage to the jaw joint and reduce the risk of developing more serious conditions, such as arthritis.

TMJ splints are comfortable and easy to use, so you should experience no noticeable discomfort while wearing one. Additionally, wearing a TMJ splint can help protect your teeth from grinding or clenching during sleep.
