TMJ Problems? Let Us Help!

Do you suffer from sore jaw muscles and sore teeth from clenching and grinding? A dental splint also called a nightguard or bite guard protects your teeth as you sleep to prevent long-term damage. At Chris Collingwood DDS we can get you the help you need to get a good night’s rest!

TMJ treatment

What is a dental splint?

There are several types of dental splints available.  Dr. Collingwood has been treating his patients successfully for over twenty years with a very precise and comfortable appliance that fits over the lower teeth.  When designed properly a splint can help relieve muscle pain and sensitive teeth by providing a smooth and even surface for your teeth while clenching and grinding.

What is a night guard?

Night guards protect both your teeth and gums while you sleep. A high-quality night guard can keep your teeth safe from damage by cushioning the effects of clenching while sleeping.
