Do you experience difficulty chewing, a locking or popping sensation in your jaw, headaches and facial pain? If you have any of these symptoms you may be suffering from Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, also known as TMJ Disorder.
TMJ Disorder is caused when the joint between your lower jaw and your skull becomes inflamed. It can be caused by clenching or grinding your teeth, excessive gum chewing, conditions such as arthritis or other factors.
Pringle Creek Dental offers treatments to alleviate the pain of TMJ Disorder and reposition the jaw to prevent further symptoms. Treatments can include massage, special stretches, anti-inflammatory medication, and physiotherapy. More advanced cases may require surgery.
If you suffer from the symptoms of TMJ Disorder, call our office today to book an examination.
