SE Calgary TMJ Syndrome

TMJ

Do you experience uncomfortable symptoms relating to your jaw? The symptoms may include difficulty swallowing, jaw pain, clicking, popping or headaches. If so, you may be suffering from Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ).

TMJ occurs when there is a problem with the joint connecting your jaw to your skull. The area connecting the jaw to the skull can become inflamed and irritated, causing a range of problems. The causes vary, and luckily, the condition is treatable.

Our qualified dentist can address these issues and make a diagnosis. TMJ is usually caused by grinding of the teeth or poor tooth alignment. Treatment varies from pain relief to restoration of tooth surfaces and orthodontics.
