George A. Hoop DDS, PA on TMJ Treatment and Teeth Grinding Read Transcript

At both our Fort Myers, FL dentist office and our Naples, FL dentist office, Dr. George Hoop and our professional team can relieve your TMJ pain and much more! Total Dental Solutions are available for all of your oral health concerns.

Signs Of A Teeth Grinding Or TMJ Disorder

Teeth grinding can result from many different sources, including stress, an abnormal bite, or missing teeth. Teeth grinding can also be a symptom of a TMJ disorder (TMD).

Temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is just a fancy technical term for the complex joint connecting your upper and lower jaw. Because this connection is so complicated, a lot of issues can occur involving your TMJ.

To know for certain if you have a TMD, you should get a professional diagnosis at our Fort Myers or Naples, FL office. That said, if you are experiencing these issues, you may have a TMD:

  • Involuntary teeth grinding
  • Pain in your face, jaw, or neck
  • Having an earache without any infection being present
  • A tired feeling in your face
  • A jaw that gets “stuck” in the opened or closed position
  • Popping, clicking, or grating sounds while chewing
  • Swelling around your jaw

Our Custom Solutions for Jaw Issues

If you suffer from teeth grinding or a TMD, we can help with both by providing a custom mouthguard or splint!

For either affliction, this custom solution will slightly shift your jaw while you sleep to prevent clenching, grinding, and other involuntary behaviors that put undue stress on your jaw and teeth. This will also allow your jaw to rest and heal!

Dr. Hoop has been in private practice in the Fort Myers, FL area since 1991 and Naples, FL since 2000. He was inducted into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon national dental honor society after his graduation in 1986 at Emory University School of Dentistry.
