TMJ

TMJ Therapy in Ontario

There are a number of conditions that may affect the temporomandibular joints (TMJs) which hinge your lower jaw to your skull. Any of these TMJ disorders can make it painful for you to chew and may cause sensitive teeth, toothache, headaches and pain in the face, neck and shoulders. The good news is that the condition is usually temporary, although some people do experience serious and chronic pain.

TMJ Treatments in Ontario

The dental profession’s understanding of TMJ disorders is evolving but we do know that they can be caused by a variety of problems ranging from disease or trauma to teeth grinding and nail or lip biting. Our TMJ Therapy treatment in Oshawa can be varied and may include massage, relaxation techniques, avoiding hard foods and gum and application of hot or cold packs. Maintaining a healthy diet, exercise and proper rest can also be helpful.

At our dental offices, we can also recommend some medical solutions such as:

  • Orthodontics, mouth guards or splints to correct misalignments
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Joint or disc replacement
