Treatment for TM Joint Pain


Treatment for TM Joint Pain

To Provide Comprehensive Quality Care

Temporo-mandibuar joint (TMJ) headaches are a common sign of teeth grinding and are usually treated with:
-The replacement of missing teeth,
-The adoption of relaxation techniques,
-Wearing an anti-grinding appliance or using prescribed medication..

1) At our Dental Clinic we are able to investigate this issue and provide a soft or hard night guard to prevent the patient from grinding their teeth during the night.
2) It may also be necessary for some individuals to change the technique they use to brush their teeth. This issue, which is referred to as abrasion, can cause the gums to recede and make the teeth more sensitive to cold air.
3) In abrasion cases, we can cover the exposed root surface using a composite resin filling, which is effective in reducing the tooth sensitivity and providing relief for patients.
4) Alternatively, individuals who grind their teeth could benefit from the use of a device, which is a clear plastic fixture that fits over the chewing surface of the teeth. By wearing this installation during the night, clenching becomes virtually impossible, thus reducing the damage caused to teeth.
5) Wearing this solution, which is available from our Clinic, can result in the suppression of the clenching reflex and can completely eradicate morning headaches, neck pain and jaw ache associated with teeth grinding and clenching.
