ASK MOSHIRI: Can Invisalign Relieve TMJ Pain?
Question: Can Invisalign Relieve TMJ Pain?
Dr. Maz Moshiri’s Answer:
We treat many patients with TMJ symptoms with Invisalign; however, our practice will initiate an initial phase with a bite orthotic in order to get the patient symptom free. For many patients, when their bite “relaxes” in the orthotic, the positioning of the teeth relative to each other will change, and thus, their treatment with Invisalign will be towards achieving a bite for them in their symptom free position. There are several ways to treat TMJ, and your orthodontist will let you know what they believe is best for you. But generally speaking, you would want to address your symptoms first before initiating any permanent changes to your bite.
