Dr. Siti Lowery may recommend splint therapy if you have been diagnosed with a TMJ disorder. Splints can stabilize and reposition the jaw for relief from TMD symptoms and to help you live a fuller, more comfortable life.
When you visit Lowery Smiles, our team will work with you to find the best possible solution to you jaw pain and discomfort so that you can continue to eat, speak, and live comfortably. Depending on your condition, our dentist can offer splint therapy guards to improve your jaw. Splints can provide a variety of benefits, such as:
- Reposition the jaw
- Protect the teeth from grinding and clenching
- Adjust an improper bite
- Allow the muscles of the jaw to relax
Dr. Siti Lowery provides custom-made splint therapy guards in Cary, North Carolina, to ensure your splint performs the necessary functions to reduce your TMJ symptoms. Our dentist will evaluate your condition to determine which style of splint is right for you and how often it needs to be worn. You may need to revisit our office periodically to have your splint adjusted so that it continues to perform at the top level and minimize TMJ discomfort.
