If you are suffering from jaw pain, you may need TMJ/TMD treatment! Our team at Dentistry in Ajax can provide services to relieve your symptoms and correct your jaw.
TMJ “temporomandibular joint disorder” refers to pain in the jaw joint. TMJ disorder can be caused by trauma to the jaw area, wear and tear over time, teeth grinding, or clenching. While the pain is concentrated in the jaw joint, it can make your bite feel unusual or out of place.
With TMJ Therapy, our goal is to correct your bite and relieve your symptoms. We will review your symptoms, habits and lifestyle choices, and help you understand how they're resulting in TMJ issues. Often, a few simple changes to your lifestyle can lead to significant pain relief from TMJ disorder symptoms.
In cases where lifestyle is not a major factor, we can recommend custom appliances which can significantly improve the symptoms you're experiencing. Other TMJ treatment therapy options include physical therapy, specialized medication, injections, and in rare cases, surgical remedies.
