TMJ (TMD) Therapy
Do you feel pain when trying to open your mouth, or does it hurt to move your mouth from side to side? You could be suffering from the common problem of Tempromandibular Joint pain or Tempromandibular Dysfunction.
Other symptoms include:
•Pain in the neck and/or shoulder
•Ringing in the ears
•Hearing loss or ear pain
•Grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw while sleeping (a common cause)
•Constantly feeling fatigued
•Hearing a popping or grating sound, or any other noise in your jaw joints
•Suffering from chronic headaches in your temples or above your eyes
Because there are multiple causes for TMJ symptoms, there’s not a “set” way of treating these conditions. That said, the first step in any successful treatment is the proper diagnosis. BLOOR KIPLING DENTISTRY can perform an evaluation of your symptoms and concerns and suggest a customized treatment therapy for your condition. In many cases, we can work with you to identify other treatment opportunities—such as physiotherapists, chiropractors, cranio/mandibular specialists or even massage therapists—who will all work together to bring you some relief.
