At Hanin Dental in Surrey, we provide treatment for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD), a jaw joint disorder that can cause jaw pain, as well as headaches, dizziness, and a variety of other problems.
What causes TMD?
TMD is a disorder whereby the joint is not functioning the way it should be. This can happen as a result of trauma to the jaw, repetitive motion problems (wear and tear), teeth grinding/clenching during sleep, or heredity.
Symptoms of TMD
Any of the following issues may be symptoms of TMD:
- Trouble chewing & biting
- Trouble opening your mouth
- Ear pain or discomfort
Are TMD symptoms treatable?
The Hanin Dental team can help you manage your TMD symptoms. After reviewing your symptoms, your habits and certain lifestyle particulars, we'll help you develop a plan to relieve your TMD symptoms.
In many cases, simple lifestyle changes can help relieve symptoms of TMD.
However, there are also custom-made appliances that can help in more severe cases. Physical therapy or surgery are also treatment options for TMD.
