TMJ Therapy in Melbourne
TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, and these are the fragile bones that attach the lower jaw (mandible) to the upper jaw (maxilla). Many people have a TMJ disorder caused by malocclusion (a misaligned bite) or because they grind or clench their teeth at night. Unfortunately, because this habit usually takes place during sleep, most sufferers have no control over what is causing their condition and don’t even realize that they are doing it. An attentive dentist will recognize the indicators during a preventive dentistry appointment, but if you are suffering with the symptoms (listed below), don’t hesitate to call us for an appointment. We will ensure that you will be on your way to feeling better than ever!
Symptoms of a TMJ disorder can include:
- Jaw Pain
- Clicking or Popping in the Jaw
- Cracked or Broken Teeth
- Neck and Shoulder Pain
- Ringing in the Ears
