Splint therapy utilizes a custom-made orthotic device that our lab will craft for you that you’ll wear each night before going to bed. Not only will it help protect your teeth from grinding and clenching, but it will also shift your jaw into its ideal position, releasing tension and pressure on your temporomandibular joints as you rest. When you wake, your jaw will feel much more relaxed and free of tension, and over time, it will adjust your jaw to eventually alleviate all of your symptoms.
Dr. Michel has advanced training and experience utilizing non-surgical techniques to ease symptoms of TMD, including taking a neuromuscular approach to doing this. This therapy method takes a look at not just your temporomandibular joints and surrounding facial muscles, but your mouth and facial anatomy as well, including the nerves, bones, and teeth. By taking this more comprehensive approach, Dr. Michel can help provide you with lasting relief.
Orthodontic Correction & Restorative Treatments
In addition to neuromuscular and splint therapy, we also offer additional services to help balance your bite, including restorative dentistry and orthodontic correction. This is often recommended for patients who suffer from crossbite, overbite, or underbite that adds additional strain to one or both of the temporomandibular joints.
