The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jaw to your skull on each side of your head. It's an important joint that manages your speech, chewing, and swallowing. Disorders associated with this area are referred to as temporomandibular disorders (TMD), and if you're noticing severe pain or discomfort in your jaw, neck, or face, it could be a sign of TMD. Bartley's Square Dental is prepared to handle cases of TMD or issues with the TMJ, by carefully diagnosing your symptoms and recognizing the cause for your symptoms.
TMDs can be caused by accidents, teeth grinding, arthritis, or a combination of factors. But no matter the cause for it, your dentist at Bartley's Square can help you treat TMD with medications, nightguards, or dental work to align your bite.
If you are experiencing jaw pains, locked jaw, or any other similar symptom, book a dental emergency appointment at our Brampton dental office so we can assess, diagnose, and suggest the right treatment for you!
