Are you suffering from pain or discomfort during normal jaw movements such as chewing or speaking? Have you noticed yourself clenching or grinding your teeth frequently? You may have a problem with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). At Joly Dental Care, we are pleased to offer TMJ treatment in Edmonton from a highly experienced staff.
A temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) can be caused by various factors including head trauma (concussions), poor dental work and common daily habits such as teeth grinding. The onset of TMD is typically gradual and may not have a great impact in the beginning. However, when left untreated, this condition may eventually affect your overall health and quality of life.
Joly Dental Care can help. Through a comprehensive evaluation, we will recommend a course of action which may include a mouth guard or splint. These devices can minimize the negative impact of jaw clenching and grinding. Other options are available for TMD treatment and our team is happy to discuss them with you.
