TMJ Devices in Saint John

If you are suffering from pain and discomfort as a result of a temporomandibular joint disorder, you may benefit from visiting your dentist for TMJ treatment. Treatment can vary from person to person, but typical treatments include medication, jaw surgery, and custom mouth guards.

What Causes TMD?

Teeth grinding, arthritis, and jaw injuries are common causes of TMD and result in pain and tenderness of the jaw joints and the surrounding muscles and ligaments. TMJ symptoms include jaw pain, shoulder and neck pain, stiffness in the jaw, headaches and migraines. You may also experience jaw popping and have difficulty opening and closing your mouth.

Treatment of TMD

If you are suffering from TMD, it’s best to talk to your dentist about the problem. They may offer a solution in the form of dental devices such as occlusal splints or night guards to relieve pain and prevent grinding and clenching of the teeth.
