What is TMD

                                                                                  What is TMD

TMD stands for temporal mandibular disorder.  Almost all suffer from it.  In most cases , it is easily treated. The main reason we suffer from TMD is that almost all people clench or grind their teeth at night.  If you  stop the clenching and grinding at night, symptoms such as  a sore jaw, neck, shoulders, upper back will be reduced dramatically.  The vast majority of cases can be treated in a cost effective and simple manner. Patients with osteoarthritis
and traumatic  blows to the jaw can be more involved.

Appliances such as night guards are uncomfortable and very ineffective. Ortho-Stop, scientifically  based, is custom made to your mouth and very comfortable.  Best of all, it has a very high success rate of reducing the symptoms of clenching and grinding, unlike a night guard or device from the pharmacy.

In future blogs, I will discuss the many benefits of reducing clenching and grinding at night. Remember, you might not have symptoms you feel, but damage is being done.  Topics such as lack of deep sleep, poor immunity, lack of energy, anxiety, depression, tinnitus and vertigo will be discussed.
