There are a number of treatments, such as SPG blocks to cold laser therapy, that address the symptoms of TMJ disorder. Now tackle the root cause. Dr. Krish uses custom-fitted mouthpieces that do more than cushion your teeth from night bruxism. Worn consistently and properly, they reshape the inside of your jaw, providing a full cure for TMD and also sleep apnea.
One of the chief culprits of TMJ disorder is bruxism, or teeth grinding, particularly at night. To counteract night bruxism and to alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with TMD, one standard treatment has been the use of a mouthpiece to cushion the teeth.
But a range of factors can contribute to TMJ disorder that can’t be addressed with a basic mouthpiece. In response, Dr. Krish carries the next generation of TMD oral appliances. These custom-fitted orthotic devices do more than simply protect against bruxism: they reshape the inside of the mouth, bringing the jaw into proper alignment. This approach promises a complete cure for both TMJ disorder and obstructive sleep apnea.
The next-generation oral appliance Dr. Krish uses to treat TMJ disorder goes a step beyond protecting you against bruxism in your sleep. Our custom-fitted device acts to gradually and painlessly reshape the inside of your mouth, spreading your upper and lower jaw over a period of several months and achieving optimal alignment of your jaw and skull. The net effect is a complete cure for TMJ disorder and obstructive sleep apnea. Get back to a good night’s sleep and eliminate your pain from TMD in a single device.
