TMJ (TMD) Therapy


The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) allow you to open and close your mouth with ease.

These joints, located on each side of the head, work hard so you can speak, chew, and swallow. Any issue that may interfere with the normal function of the ligaments, muscles, disc, and bone included in the TMJ system may result to TMJ dysfunction.

Here are some symptoms of TMJ disorder:
  • Pain or discomfort when opening mouth
  • Teeth grinding or clenching during sleep
  • Ear, neck, and shoulder pain
  • Popping sound in joint
  • Chronic fatigue

Treatment process may be complex. Patients may need to work with other specialists to ease the symptoms. Your dentist may recommend orthodontic treatment or reshaping your teeth to correct uneven bite.

Carstairs dentists offer TMJ therapy to patients. If you deem you are suffering from TMJ disorder, kindly schedule an appointment with us so we can take a look at your condition.
