TMJ & TMD Treatment
TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders are actually a group of disorders that affect and impair the joint connecting the lower jaw and skull. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms below, you may have a TMJ disorder. At Albee Family Dental, we offer treatments such as night guards (bruxism splints), to meet your needs and help restore your comfort.
Because there are many causes of TMJ disorders, our treatment is personalized to each patient following a consultation with our dentist. For more information on TMJ disorders and bruxism, or to schedule your consultation, please call or visit us soon!

- Changes to the bite
- Popping or clicking when closing or opening the mouth
- A “locked” jaw
