Many people do not understand just how debilitating TMJ and head and neck pain can be. It can seriously effect your quality of life. In our office, we do understand that nocturnal and daytime clenching and bruxing(tooth grinding) are the number one cause of TMJ(jaw joint) problems, tension headaches and associated migraine headaches, head and neck pain, and muscular stiffness.
We have advanced beyond using a traditional flat plane night guard or bite guard to much more effective appliances.
Dr. Luisi has received extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ dysfunction and orofacial pain. He employs a large array of advanced appliances, some of which are available nowhere else in S.W. Florida. Our appliances go beyond just protecting your teeth from grinding. They are designed to actually inhibit and stop the clenching and bruxing problem from happening any more. The best one is F.D.A. cleared for the treatment of sleep apnea, snoring, sleep bruxing(clenching and grinding), and tension headaches with associated migraine headaches.
This completely drug-free resolution of your pain problems can be strikingly effective and tends to be long-lasting---not degrading over time.
