Bruxism and TMJ
Say no to headaches.
Addressing Bruxism at Estepona Dental Clinic
At Estepona Dental Clinic, we help you treat bruxism. We provide tailored occlusal splints for each case. We have specialists in bruxism and TMJ.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects the jaw to the skull. Two joints that work synchronously. TMJ disorders and overload problems of the mandibular muscles are another cause of non-dental origin face and headache pain. A significant percentage of the population has some functional alteration of the masticatory system and is unaware of it. Commonly known as bruxism, it’s a habit some people have of clenching their teeth against each other, occurring either voluntarily or involuntarily.
The most common symptoms of these disorders are: facial pain, headaches, ear pain, neck pain, muscle or jaw pain, clicking sounds, limited mouth mobility, and/or intermittent lockjaw.
