TMJ

"TMJ syndrome” is what we commonly call Temporomandibular joint disorder. It means your TMJ joint — the joint which connects your jaw and your skull — is inflamed, and it often causes severe pain.

Common symptoms of TMJ syndrome:
  • Pain or difficulty while biting/chewing
  • Clicking or popping sound when opening or closing your mouth
  • Dull, aching pain in your face, ears or jaw
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Neck or shoulder pain

People feel TMJ pain in varying degrees, and there are many potential causes.

Common causes of TMJ pain:
  • Clenching or grinding your teeth
  • Malalignment of your teeth
  • Jaw thrusting
  • Excessive gum chewing
  • Excessive nail-biting
  • A joint disease, such as osteoarthritis
  • Lack of overbite

There are different ways to end the pain and discomfort caused by TMJ syndrome.

If your teeth are misaligned, dental work may be required to restore proper occlusion. The team at Northern Dental Centre can have you fitted with a special guard that will prevent your teeth from being damaged and keep your jaw from clenching while you sleep.
