Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD/TMJ)

Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD/TMJ)

If you frequently grind your teeth or experience joint pain in your jaw, you may have Temporomandibular Disorder or Joint Dysfunction, also known as TMD or TMJ.

If the pain stems more from the joints and facial area, and you’re subject to frequent clicking sounds and tenderness around your ears as you’re eating, you may be suffering from TMD or TMJ. These common disorders affect the muscles around the jaw, as well as the joints connecting the mandible to the skull.

Dr. Popp and our team of Calgary dentists offer custom night guards and other simple, easy-to-follow solutions to help you correct this disorder and alleviate any pain and discomfort.

The Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) Rehabilitation Procedure

For moderate cases of TMD or TMJ, we’ll assess your bite and give you a specially designed night guard or splint to wear when you sleep. This flexible acrylic device will help reduce tooth clenching and grinding.

For more serious cases of TMD related to misaligned or uneven teeth, we may recommend dental crowns or orthodontic treatment to bring the teeth into proper alignment.

TMD/TMJ Rehabilitation Benefits

  • Relieves muscle pain and soreness in the neck and jaw
  • Improves your bite so you can eat and talk comfortably
  • Enables better movement and flexibility through your neck, face and jaw
  • Reduces headaches caused by excessive facial and jaw tension

Outcome of TMD/TMJ Rehabilitation

Once we’ve determined the right TMD or TMJ treatment for you, you’ll notice a significant improvement in any muscle pain or bite issues.
