We Can Help With TMJ Pain

Do you experience pain when you open or close your mouth or hear popping or clicking when you chew?

If so, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMJ disorder or TMD. At Alexandra Park Dental, we have the knowledge and experience required to diagnose TMJ disorders and recommend pain management strategies that can help.

You don’t need to suffer with jaw pain. Book an appointment today.

What is TMJ?

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinged joint that connects the jaw to the skull and allows the jaw to move up and down and from side to side.

If this joint has been damaged or stressed in any way and causes discomfort and pain, TMJ disorder can develop.

  • Clicking or popping when you chew or move the jaw joint
  • Jaw pain and/or sore jaw muscles
  • Earaches or popping in the ears
  • Lockjaw
  • Difficulty opening mouth wide
  • Headaches

Although the causes of TMJ disorder are somewhat unknown and hard to pinpoint, the following symptoms, often in combination, are thought to be the leading causes of TMJ disorder:

  • Injury to the jaw joint
  • Arthritis or another joint disease
  • Chronic teeth clenching or grinding (bruxism)
  • Ill-fitting dentures
  • Stress

After discussing your symptoms and reviewing your medical and dental history, we will conduct a full examination of your jaw joint. We’ll listen for any unusual sounds when you open and close your mouth, check pain points, and inspect your range of motion.

If necessary, we may recommend taking x-rays to help us better diagnose your problem.

How We Can Help

We offer a variety of treatments to reduce pain and manage the discomfort associated with TMJ disorder.

Custom oral appliances can reposition the jaw joints for proper alignment. Worn primarily during sleep, a custom mouth guard can help jaw joints and muscles to relax and has proven beneficial for many of our patients.

We may recommend massage and warm or cold compresses to relax joint muscles and provide relief. Anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxants, exercise, and relaxation techniques are all strategies that can relieve pain and make your jaw more comfortable.

The front desk ladies were very pleasant and helpful beyond expected in arranging a last minute appointment with a requested dentist. Also I had an insurance issue they tried working out on my behalf for an hour during my appointment which was very kind of them. The dentist and assistant were friendly and very accommodating. Everything about my 1.5hr appointment was quick, efficient, friendly and helpful. Thanks everyone!read more

Dr. Lee and his staff are truly amazing! I took my 3 year old there for his first ever dentist appointment and it went off without a hitch. My son loved the fact that he got to watch TV while getting his teeth cleaned. He experienced no pain so there was nothing but smiles. Afterwards he told me that he can’t wait to go back and get more free toothbrushes!read more

I was very happy with my experience today at Alexandra Park Dental. Safety was their first concern, with masks and face guards being used, and information gathered to ensure that their patients were feeling well. Because of this, I was able to sit back and relax while they x-rayed and cleaned my more
