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.

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.
