What are the traditional TMJ treatment options?
The most traditional form of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD) treatment has been to prescribe bite splints. Bite splints are plastic mouthpieces that fit over the upper or lower teeth to prevent the teeth from coming together, thus reducing the amount of clenching and grinding that cause TMJ pain. While bite splints help to reduce pain associated with TMJ disorder they have shortcomings. They cannot be worn while eating and they also affect speech. As a result they are typically only worn at night while sleeping.
Cerezen™ ear canal inserts however, are ideal for daytime use. That’s because they do not affect eating or speaking, are barely visible, and are comfortable enough to wear all day while they relieve TMJ pain.
