TMJ & TMD Treatment in Brampton

If You Experience Neck Pain, Jaw Pain, or Headaches When You Wake Up, You Could be Suffering from Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)

Do you experience chronic pain including headaches, neck pain, jaw pain, and pain in your face and shoulders? Do you have short and worn teeth? If so, you may be suffering from a condition known as temporomandibular joint disorder or TMJ disorder.

The temporomandibular joint is the name of the joint located on either side of your head,where the lower jaw is hinged to the skull. When there is a problem with this muscle, which allows you to chew, swallow, speak and yawn, TMJ may result.

There are many possible causes of TMJ including facial trauma, joint disease (such as arthritis), tooth clenching or grinding (called bruxism) caused by stress,etc.

There are many effective TMJ treatments. One of our iSmile dentists in Brampton may fit you with a night guard (a clear plastic fitting for your teeth) to eliminate the effects of bruxism, or prescribe you with some relaxation training.
