TMJ Appliances
In Boston

TMJ is an abbreviation for temporomandibular joint. These joints are in front of each ear and attach the lower jaw to your skull. The temporomandibular joints are what allow your mouth to open and close, which gives you the ability to swallow, speak, and chew. Several problems can arise with the temporomandibular joint, which can be corrected through the use of TMJ appliances. Dental Partners of Boston offer custom appliances to our patients.

What are TMJ Appliances?

TMJ appliances are devices meant to correct issues associated with the temporomandibular joints. A TMJ appliance is similar to a mouth guard. It is designed to decompress the joint which prevents the effects of teeth grinding and teeth clenching. There is also additional relief for the patient as it changes the resting length of the muscles.
