The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a ball and socket joint that makes the movement of the jaw possible. Due to crooked teeth or trauma, moving this joint can become painful and even everyday things like chewing, yawning and even opening the mouth can cause acute pain. When TMJ is misaligned, the condition is known as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).
TMD can result in chronic pain, headaches, and clicking in the jaw. We can help. Depending on your TMJ health physiotherapy, mandibular massage, and a night guard or bite splints may be useful. In some cases, medication may be necessary to ease pain and subside symptoms. If you live in Surrey then you should visit us. Triton Dental can help you ease that terrible which is keeping you up all night.
While not many people around the world are affected by TMJ misalignment, it is not as uncommon as you would like to believe. If your jaw is popping or there are increased involuntary movements in your TMJ then you might be suffering from TMD. Not just jaw, the TMD disorder can also cause back pain and migraine. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should contact Triton Dental at the earliest.
We will thoroughly examine your condition and decide the method of treatment accordingly. It can be suggesting therapy sessions to relax the joint muscles, medication or even use of special devices like a mouthguard. We will design a treatment that is best for your condition.
