Feel Better & Enjoy Life More With Appliance Therapy

We offer a non-invasive way to treat pain from your temporomandibular joints (TMJ). Your TMJs are complex joints that sit on either side of your head. They make it possible to open and close your mouth for eating, talking, laughing, and yawning. Researchers don’t fully understand why TMJs become inflamed and painful, but they do know certain treatments can minimize the symptoms.

At Athos Dental, we will provide you with a TMJ appliance called an NTI-tss. This splint will:

  • Fit over your front teeth to keep them apart and prevent teeth grinding (also known as bruxism)
  • Reduce or eliminate your jaw pain,
  • Relieve tension on your jaw joints, and reduce tension and swelling in your face, neck, and shoulders
  • Minimize the number and/or intensity of related headaches, since teeth grinding is a major contributor to migraines

Call Athos Dental today at 708-426-1478 for TMJ treatment in Monee. Don’t go through life in pain! You can also request an appointment online for a free TMJ consultation or for your next checkup.

Common Questions About TMJ Treatment/Teeth Grinding

Does TMJ treatment work?

The key to relieving TMJ pain is easing pressure on your jaw. To do that, we can make you an appliance that gently moves your jaw into a position that keeps pressure off your jaw. The appliance also keeps you from clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth, two behaviors that trigger TMJ pain.

How long does TMJ treatment take?

There is no standard length for TMJ treatment. It depends on many factors, including the severity of your symptoms. Since a splint not only relieves TMJ pain but also prevents damage to teeth caused by grinding, many patients make it a permanent addition to their bedtime routine.

Will insurance pay for my TMJ treatment?

Your insurance may pay for part of your TMJ treatment. We can help determine what your plan will and won’t cover and what your portion of the cost may be. Keep in mind that we offer financing options to help pay for your treatment. We work with CareCredit, which has low-interest payment plans.
