TMJ (TMD) Therapy
Do you hear a popping or clicking sound when you move your jaw or open your mouth wide?
If so, you are likely to be suffering from Temporomandibular Joint pain (TMJ) or Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD).
Among the sounds you may be hearing, other symptoms may include:
•Grinding or clenching your teeth while asleep
•Neck & shoulder stiffness or pain
•Chronic fatigue throughout the day
•Aural symptoms such as hearing loss, and ringing or pain in the ear(s)
•Chronic headaches located at your temples or above the eyes
These symptoms, while common to those suffering from TMJ or TMD, could potentially be brought about by a completely different ailment. This means that it is highly important to be properly assessed by a team of dental professionals. At River Edge Dental, the staff ensures that every patient receives the appropriate treatment in order to target the specific symptoms. If necessary, our staff will also collaborate with an array of other treatment partners such as chiropractors, cranio / mandibular specialists, physiotherapists or massage therapists. We will take the time to recommend the appropriate treatment partner in order to ensure that all the patient's symptoms will be alleviated.
Please don't hesitate to contact us at River Edge Dental in Keswick, Bradford, or Orangeville.
