In the United States, as many as 50-70% of kids wear braces; many adults also use these and other orthodontic devices. Requests to take pressure off a painful or tight TMJ are all too common in our practices. While wearing enamel-protecting night guards shields the teeth from damage, it does little to reduce pain in the jaw. In kids, braces may serve as a corrective measure but they often come with a price of discomfort or even migraines.
