Only 12% of consumers said they received significant TMJ pain relief from wearing a mouth guard, while a similar percentage (10%) said that using a mouth guard made their pain worse.

"Mouth guards do a good job of protecting against tooth enamel wear from teeth grinding, but the majority of pain that TMJ disorder sufferers experience stems not from enamel wear, but from the ongoing nightly tissue damage done by nighttime teeth clenching," says Lee Weinstein, CEO of Holistic Technologies. Typical pain symptoms experienced by TMJ disorder sufferers include jaw pain, tooth pain, facial pain, muscle pain, temporomandibular joint pain, migraines, headaches, sinus pain, and ear pain. "Some of these types of pain come directly from tissue damage done by nighttime clenching", explains Weinstein, "and all the other types of pain result indirectly." The attached pain etiology chart shows how many types of pain experienced by TMJ sufferers result from teeth clenching, which most often happens during sleep.
