TMJ (TMD) Therapy in Kanata Ontario

Our dental team doesn’t only treat tooth problems but also helps to treat temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ) or temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD). These conditions are extremely prevalent and are often caused when there are issues with the temporomandibular joint that connects your skull to your jaw. Common TMJ symptoms can include:
 
  • Difficulty opening your mouth.
  • Pain in your jaw, neck, ears, or shoulders.
  • Headaches and migraines.
  • Popping or clicking sounds when moving your jaw joint.
  • Ringing in the ears.
  • Frequent tiredness during the day.
  • Bruxism, which includes teeth grinding or clenching while sleeping.

As you may have noticed, TMJ symptoms can be quite varied, which means that TMJ can impact people in different ways. As a result, it’s important to find the root cause of your symptoms so that we can properly treat it. TMJ is often caused when there is an impairment with the TMJ joint, such as from an injury, damage, or genetic factors.

At Kanata Lakes Dental Centre, we will perform an in-depth examination of your mouth and jaw to determine the root cause of your TMJ pain. Depending on the cause, we can create a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Your treatment plan may include massage therapists, chiropractors, physiotherapists, and other experts from various fields. But rest assured, we are committed to helping you relieve your TMJ pain once and for all. Contact our practice in Kanata to set up a consultation today.
