What is TMJ?

Is your TMJ giving you trouble?

Have you been experiencing a number of distressing symptoms, including pain in your jaw?

It may be your TMJ. TMJ is short for the temporomandibular joint, but the acronym is often used to indicate Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, or sometimes TMJ Syndrome.

TMJ Disorder has a number of known causes, ranging from repetitive strain injury, a sports induced injury, whiplash from a vehicle accident, dental work and implant dentistry. Mental stress or a trauma can also cause TMJ problems. Many woman experience TMJ related issues post partum as well.

TMJ disfunction symptoms are not always clear

The muscles surrounding the jaw can become tight, which causes pain throughout the head and neck. It is difficult to open the jaw with a smooth action and the movement of the jaw becomes restricted.

Clicking and popping also takes place when a person inflicted with TMJ pain tries to move his or her jaw. Accompanied with the jaw problems are headaches and migraines, teeth grinding at night and clenching during the day.

Symptoms of TMJ Disorder are often carried a long way from the joint itself throughout the system of nerves in the head, so a victim feel TMJ related symptoms in other places, such as;

  • ear pain
  • neck and shoulder pain
  • ringing in the ears
  • dizziness
  • blurry vision

None of these symptoms are easy to live with, especially if they are chronic, but there are some solutions available to help with your problem. We can offer you consultation here at You First Dental in Airdrie, along with some treatment options.

There is a dental option for your TMJ problem

Once you have taken the step to seek treatment, you are on the path to finding a treatment option for your TMJ.​

At the consultation, a full examination will take place and your prior medical history will be consulted as well. If it is found that your TMJ is misaligned which is causing tightness in the joint and associated pain, our You First Dental dentist will assess the correct position of your jaw by using relaxation techniques to relax your TMJ.

Once the right position for your jaw has been established – which allows your TMJ to move freely without inflicting pain on the nerves throughout the head, neck and shoulders – we can move on to the next step.

At You First Dental we can design a custom mouthguard that may help to keep your TMJ correctly aligned. Continuous use at night may eventually cause your TMJ to remain in the right place and the stress that the misaligned TMJ places on your nerves may be eliminated.

If this treatment does not eliminate the symptoms, there are further options such as orthodontics, as well as full mouth reconstruction, which involves rebuilding damaged and missing teeth to provide a more optimal bite.

Time to make your TMJ problem go away!
