At Smile Dental Art Centre, we are delighted to announce that we now offer specialized treatment for Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ). Our experienced team of dentists understands the impact that TMJ issues can have on your overall well-being, and we are dedicated to providing effective solutions to alleviate your discomfort and restore optimal jaw function.

What is TMJ?

TMJ refers to a group of conditions affecting the temporomandibular joint, which connects your jawbone to your skull. This joint is essential for everyday activities like chewing, talking, and yawning. TMJ disorders can result from various factors, such as jaw misalignment, teeth grinding (bruxism), stress, or trauma.

Common Symptoms of TMJ Dysfunction:

  • Jaw pain or tenderness
  • Clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing the mouth
  • Difficulty opening or closing the mouth fully
  • Facial pain or soreness, including around the ears
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Jaw locking
  • Pain or discomfort while chewing
  • Unexplained toothaches or sensitivity
  • Neck and shoulder pain

Our TMJ Treatment Approach:

At Smile Dental Art Centre, we take a personalized and comprehensive approach to treat TMJ Dysfunction. Our process includes:

  1. Thorough Evaluation: Our dentists will conduct a detailed examination of your jaw, teeth, and overall oral health. We may also use advanced imaging techniques to assess the temporomandibular joint’s condition.
  2. Customized Treatment Plan: Based on your specific diagnosis, we will create a tailored treatment plan to address your TMJ issues effectively.
  3. Pain Relief: We offer various methods to alleviate pain and discomfort, which may include heat or cold therapy, pain medication, or muscle relaxants.
  4. Orthodontic Solutions: If misaligned teeth are contributing to your TMJ dysfunction, we may recommend orthodontic treatments to correct the bite.
  5. Nightguards: For patients with bruxism, we can provide custom-made nightguards to protect the teeth and reduce jaw tension caused by grinding.
  6. Stress Management: We can provide guidance on stress management techniques that may help reduce TMJ symptoms triggered by tension and anxiety.
