TMJ (TMD) Therapy in Ottawa, Ontario

If you frequently wake up with a sore jaw or a painful migraine, there may be a chance that you have Temporomandibular Joint pain (TMJ) or Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD). TMJ or TMD occurs when the temporomandibular joint becomes impaired or damaged, which is the joint that connects your jaw to the skull.

TMJ can negatively impact you in a number of ways such as:

  • Making it difficult to open your mouth.
  • Pain in your jaw, face, neck or shoulders.
  • Ringing the ears or hearing loss.
  • Daytime tiredness.
  • Frequent migraines or headaches.
  • Teeth grinding or clenching.
  • Popping or grating sounds in the TMJ joint.

Treating TMJ is often complicated since it can affect each person differently. As a result, the best way to successfully treat it is with a complete diagnosis. At St. Laurent Dental Centre we will personally work with you to create a treatment plan appropriate for your needs. This can include professionals from other fields, such as massage therapists, chiropractors, and physiotherapists.
