If you suffer from headache pain associated with clenching and grinding of the teeth, we can help. Dr. Kaplan is experienced and successful in the conservative treatment and management of temporomandibular joint disorders.
After a thorough study of casts of your teeth (study models) mounted on an instrument called an articulator (which can duplicate jaw movements), Dr. Kaplan will recommend the best treatment for you to help provide relief and comfort, and to preserve your teeth. This may include orthodontics, a bite splint or bite adjustment (subtle tooth shape corrections) to improve your bite.
Occlusal orthotics/therapeutic bite splints are made to our prescription specifications by our trained laboratory technicians.
