AND EFFECTIVE TREATMENT
What is Grinding/ Clenching and TMJ?
Bruxism is when you clench (tightly hold your top and bottom teeth together) or grind (slide your teeth back and forth over each other) your teeth.
People can clench and grind without being aware of it during both the day and night, although sleep-related bruxism is often the bigger problem because it is harder to control.
The cause of bruxism is not completely agreed upon, but daily stress may be the trigger in many people. Some people probably clench their teeth and never feel symptoms.
When to Contact a Medical Professional
There is no recognized TMJ specialty in dentistry. See a dentist immediately if you are having trouble eating or opening your mouth. Keep in mind that a wide variety of possible conditions can cause TMJ symptoms, from arthritis to whiplash injuries. Therefore, see your dentist for a full evaluation if self-care measures do not help within several weeks.
Grinding and clenching does not fall clearly into one medical disciplines. For a massage-based approach, look for a massage therapist trained in trigger point therapy, neuromuscular therapy, or clinical massage.
Dentists who have more experience in evaluating and treating TMJ disorders will typically take x-rays and prescribe a mouth guard. Surgery is now considered a last resort for TMJ.
Stress reduction and anxiety management may reduce bruxism in people prone to the condition.

What is CEREZEN?
Cerezen is a unique, pioneering medical device that effectively treats TMD (Temporomandibular Disorders) and associated symptoms such as Jaw Pain, Teeth Grinding, Clenching and Headaches.
Clinically effective , and custom made to fit your ears, Cerezen devices can be worn day or night. They’re discreet and comfortable because they’re specially-made for you.
The Science Behind Cerezen
When you move your jaw, your ear canal opens and closes. As the ear canal is so close to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), it makes it the perfect place to target the source of your symptoms.
When your customised Cerezen devices are inserted into the ear canal, they retain the shape of your ear canal in the open jaw position because they are made from a 3D printed rigid material.
The Cerezen devices effectively encourage the jaw to return to a relaxed position and provides symptom relief.
