Stop Teeth Grinding With Our Help

Several factors can contribute to TMJ pain. For example, if you’re under stress, suffer from arthritis, or have a misaligned bite, these all can cause discomfort in your jaw, face, neck, or upper back. But don’t worry; Monroe Smiles has the solution. We are happy to create custom night guards for you or treat your migraines with Xeomin, an injectable similar to Botox. Here are some of the ways our caring team can help:

  • Night Guards: We can make custom night guards to alleviate your nocturnal jaw clenching, teeth grinding, and muscle tightness. These guards act as a barrier to keep you from grinding your teeth while you sleep. The night guard also keeps your jaw relaxed, so you won’t wake up with a sore jaw, headaches, earaches, or other painful symptoms.
  • Xeomin: As with Botox, injections every 4-6 months can relieve facial, jaw, and neck pain. These safe injections are also known to help get rid of migraine headaches.

You don’t need to struggle with teeth clenching or teeth grinding. Call Monroe Smiles at 360-967-0101 today for treatment in Monroe. Or request an appointment online. We can’t wait to help!

Common Questions About Teeth Clenching / Teeth Grinding

Does teeth grinding treatment work?

TMJ problems typically won’t go away without treatment. TMJ pain is usually caused when the joints in your jaw become inflamed. This commonly occurs because of two habits that put your jaw under pressure: clenching and teeth grinding. We can make a custom mouthguard for you that will stop these behaviors so that your jaw can heal. We may also recommend Xeomin treatments, a safe injectable that relieves the muscle tension that can trigger TMJ problems.

How long does teeth clenching treatment take?

The length of your TMJ treatment will depend on the treatment method you require. Some patients respond well to Xeomin treatment, which requires only 10 minutes to administer. Other patients need to wear a night guard or splint while sleeping to eliminate their TMJ pain. Some patients respond best to clear aligner therapy to correct a misaligned bite, which usually takes between 12 and 18 months to complete.

Will insurance pay for my teeth clenching treatment?

TMJ treatment may be covered by your regular health insurance. We recommend you check with your insurance carrier for specifics on your coverage. If you don’t have coverage for your treatment, we offer several payment options, including in-house financing. We’ll work with you to get the TMJ treatment you need.
