During the pandemic, a rise in dental issues across the U.S. including here at our practice has occurred. There has been an uptick of TMJ and tooth fractures. Read more about how the TMJ increase may be caused by at-home improvised workstations that don’t provide the correct posture support. Posture directly effects the jawbone that is connected to the skull. Tooth cracks and fractures are most likely due to the added stress which increases clenching and grinding; a night guard can help prevent cracked teeth. If you are experiencing any of these problems, please make an appointment.
