If you experience jaw pain, headaches, or have difficulty opening your mouth, you may have a TMJ disorder. Our dental team can determine if your bite may be a factor and help you feel comfortable again.
Temporomandibular joints (TMJ), are the joints that attach your jaws to your skull. These joints allow us to open and close our mouth, swallow, chew, and speak. When these joints, muscles, and teeth are not properly aligned, painful conditions such as TMJ disorders can develop.
TMJ disorders can be triggered by an accident, teeth clenching/grinding, or arthritis. Symptoms include facial or back pain, migraines, sensitive/sore teeth, limited jaw movement, or popping jaw joints.
Dental appliances can be made to stabilize your bite and help determine what, if any, further dental treatments may be needed to keep you comfortable and pain free.
If you have any questions or concerns about your jaw pain or headaches, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can reach us at (514) 364-3366 or click here to visit our website. Also be sure to visit our Facebook page to keep up with information that affect your dental health and wellness.
