Understanding TMJ Disorder

TMJ disorder refers to a condition that affects the temporomandibular joint, which connects your jaw to your skull. This complex joint is responsible for essential functions like chewing, speaking, and yawning. When the TMJ becomes inflamed or damaged, it can lead to a variety of uncomfortable symptoms, including:

 

  • Jaw pain or tenderness
  • Difficulty chewing or biting
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds in the jaw joint
  • Locking of the jaw
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Ear pain or ringing in the ears (tinnitus)

At Boileau Dental Care, we take a holistic approach to TMJ treatment, addressing both the symptoms and underlying causes of your condition. Our goal is to provide you with long-term relief and improve your overall quality of life.

 

Comprehensive Evaluation: Your TMJ treatment journey begins with a thorough evaluation by one of our experienced dentists. During this assessment, we’ll review your medical history, discuss your symptoms, and perform a comprehensive examination of your jaw joint and surrounding structures.

 

Customized Treatment Plan: Based on our evaluation findings, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and goals. Your treatment plan may include a combination of conservative therapies and advanced interventions to address your symptoms effectively.
