Lifestyle and home remedies to manage TMJ disorder
If you experience TMJ disorder symptoms, consult with a doctor for sleep apnea and snoring treatment at the earliest to help you manage the condition. In addition to laser treatment for sleep apnea and snoring, here are a few home remedies that may help you manage obstructive sleep apnea:
- 1. Control your tension-related habits like clenching your jaw, chewing your nails, grinding your teeth, etc.
- 2. Avoid overusing your jaw muscles. Eat soft foods or cut your meal into small bite-sized pieces for easy chewing. Steer clear of sticky foods and avoid using chewing gum.
- 3. Speak to an OSA specialist, dentist, or physical therapist to learn stretching and strengthening exercises for the jaw. Specific jaw massage techniques also help alleviate the pain and discomfort you experience with TMJ disorders.
Apply warm or ice packs to the side of the face where you feel pain or discomfort from time to time. You should remember that home remedies may not benefit you much as a standalone treatment.
Are oral splints safe and effective?
The safety and efficiency of an intraoral appliance depend on its design, construction, and several other factors. Make sure to buy your obstructive sleep apnea splint from an experienced sleep doctor for the best results. We create customized oral appliances for those with a sleep apnea diagnosis to ensure a comfortable fit.
Besides, oral splints as a standalone treatment may not yield the best results. It is pivotal that you use splints as a part of comprehensive sleep apnea and snoring treatment to manage your TMJ disorder effectively. Typically, the use of laser in sleep disorders alongside intraoral splints and physical therapy can ensure a speedy and sustainable recovery from sleep apnea and snoring problems.
What is the purpose of the splint in TMJ problems?
A splint is a dental appliance covering the upper or lower teeth in patients with TMJ disorders. It is easily removable and made of hard acrylic resin and we customize it to fit your teeth perfectly for a better bit and more comfort. Most people wear it during the night to prevent snoring and enjoy uninterrupted sleep. The purpose of a splint is to provide relief from facial pain and improve jaw function. It is often a part of an integrated treatment plan.
In some cases, a splint also reduces tooth grinding and relaxes the tight and sore jaw muscles. More importantly, they ensure the free flow of oxygen through the airway when you sleep and improve breathing.
