What is TMD?
TMD, or temporomandibular joint dysfunction, is characterized by problems with your jaw joint (temporomandibular joint, or TMJ) and the surrounding facial muscles. These problems can manifest in a variety of ways, such as jaw pain, headaches, and other discomfort. Signs you may be suffering from TMD are:
- stiffness or discomfort in your jaw
- trouble chewing or otherwise moving your jaw
- popping or clicking when moving your jaw
- headaches or migraines
- ear pain
- facial pain or other discomfort
- swelling near your face or jaw

What can the doctors at Parkway Dental do to help?
If you are experiencing signs of TMD, the first thing we want to do is get you into our office for a thorough examination. During this examination, we will talk about your symptoms and determine where to begin treatment. This is also a great time to discuss nutrition — as you may know, what you eat directly affects your overall (and dental) health.
We can then create an oral appliance to help alleviate the stress on your jaw. We can create an occlusal guard that is typically worn at night to relieve the pressure on your jaw due to TMD/ TMJ. These guards also help to prevent damage to crowns, bridges, and other cosmetic work due to bruxism (teeth grinding or clenching).
Once you begin wearing your mouthguard, you will notice less stress on your jaw joint. You may also notice that your headaches disappear. This is our goal. We want you to feel your best. We will work to help you alleviate your TMD symptoms and help you get back to your normal life.
Bruxism and Snoring Solutions
In addition to the symptoms listed above, some other conditions are often linked to TMD. Other conditions that are associated with TMD are:
- Grinding your teeth unknowingly
- Habitual clenching of the jaw
- Regular or loud snoring
Bruxism (grinding or clenching your teeth) and snoring can be alleviated or even eliminated altogether with our oral appliance technology. If you are suffering from either of these conditions, please contact our office as soon as possible for an examination.
