TMJ (TMD) Therapy

Do you hear a popping  or grating sound when you open your mouth?  Are you suffering from pain when trying to open your mouth or move it from side to side? If so, you may have Tempromandibular Joint pain or Tempromandibular Dysfunction. Other common symptoms may include:

  • Neck and/or shoulder pain
  • Ear symptoms, including hearing loss, ringing, or pain
  • Clenching/grinding your teeth during sleep
  • A chronic feeling of tiredness
  • Ongoing headaches at your temples or  above your eyes

The symptoms described above may be symptoms of TMJ, but they may also be due to another condition. That’s why it’s so important to get a proper diagnosis, so you can treat the problem accordingly. Ottawa Heritage Dental will be happy to perform a comprehensive examination and recommend a treatment plan based on your specific symptoms and concerns. Should we determine the need to get other treatment partners involved—like chiropractors, cranio/mandibular specialists, physiotherapists or massage therapists—we can recommend potential treatment partners and can work together to relieve your symptoms.
