Orthostop is designed to intercede this clench/grind phenomenon dramatically and help the autoimmune patient cope with their hypersensitivity to pain. Sleep and tolerance to this pain should be better.
In addition to Fibromyalgia, the following autoimmune diseases can play a part in an increase in the clench/grind syndrome:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Type 1 diabetes
- Multiple sclerosis
- Celiac disease
- Alopecia areata
- Hashimoto's disease
- Addison disease
- Graves' disease
- Sjogren's syndrome
- Myasthenia gravis
If you suffer from tinnitus, vertigo, or Meniere's disease, it is quite possible that TMJ symptoms are causing the problem. When you clench and grind, the jaw muscles tense and so do the ear muscles, because of their close proximity. Orthostop will stop the jaw muscles from clenching and grinding, thus relieving the ear pressure symptoms.
Ortho-Stop can increase CPAP compliance in conjunction with CPAP use. Having worked with over 1000 cases dealing with clenching and grinding, I can assure you positive results with Ortho-Stop.
The Consequences of Untreated TMJ
Untreated TMJ disorder can lead to chronic pain, popping, and locking of the jaw. If it continues untreated, it can even damage bone, requiring periodontal surgery. Fortunately, Ortho-Stop’s proactive approach to this condition can help prevent further damage. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
