Seek Help From a Trusted Dental Professional
Dr. Guy has practiced dentistry for well over 30 years. He’s helped many patients feel better over the decades, so you can feel confident trusting him to take care of your hurting jaw.
Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are located on both sides of your head. These are complex joints that make it possible to eat, talk, laugh, and yawn. For reasons that aren’t yet fully understood, your TMJ can become irritated and cause you a great deal of pain.
Personalized care from Guy H. Fortier, DDS can help, however. Much of the TMJ pain we see can be eliminated by correcting the bite, but we can also fit you with a custom mouthguard if necessary. This appliance will gently move your lower jaw forward while you sleep.
The movement will be enough to relieve tension on your TMJ so that it relaxes and your jaw feels better. The mouthguard will also help prevent teeth grinding, which can lead to abnormal teeth wear and damage to your tooth enamel.
Get the relief you deserve with TMJ treatment in Fort Wayne. Call us today at 260-888-3871 to schedule your appointment. You can also request an appointment time online for TMJ help or for your next checkup.
