We Offer Teeth Grinding & Headache Solutions in Clinton TownshipJohn Dobry DDS on TMJ and teeth grinding Read Transcript
As far as TMJ goes, if a person has true TMJ, I will refer them to a specialist. If they're experiencing headaches from clenching, or we notice excessive wear of teeth, there's different bite guards that we can recommend, whether it's a traditional bite guard that covers the teeth, or whether it's an NTI, which prevents them from clenching.
You may be grinding your teeth in your sleep without even knowing it. Teeth grinding can do you harm in several different ways, including causing headaches. Dobry Dental in Clinton Township, MI provides TMJ treatment so you can feel better and prevent bigger problems. Dr. Dobry uses oral appliances and mouthguards to help:

It’s no fun to wake up with a throbbing headache or a sore jaw. If teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) is wreaking havoc on your life, it’s time you visited Dr. Dobry for relief. Just like many other residents in and around Clinton Township, he offers you hope to be free from the harmful effects caused by grinding your teeth.
One of the ways we treat teeth grinding and headaches is with an FDA-approved oral appliance known as the NTI-tss®. Made of clear acrylic, this innovative device fits over the four front teeth to keep them and your back teeth apart when your jaw muscles are clenched.
By preventing your back teeth from grinding together, muscle tension in your temple area is reduced, helping prevent migraine and tension headaches. Use of the NTI-tss® can allow you to wake up feeling more rested, without any headache or jaw pain associated with teeth clenching.
Dobry Dental also offers custom mouthguards designed specifically to treat bruxism. These appliances fit over your teeth (usually your upper ones) to keep you from grinding your teeth while sleeping. Just like an NTI-tss® device, they will help reduce damage to your teeth, jaw pain, and headache pain.
After your exam, Dr. Dobry will advise you which treatment option will work best for your particular situation. If your pain is associated with your temporomandibular joints (TMJ), he will refer you to a specialist for treatment.
