Temporomandibular Joint Pain Therapy in Calgary

Temporomandibular joint pain therapy in Calgary

We mostly think about teeth’ function, health, and appearance when it comes to oral health. Nonetheless, optimal oral health also includes the correct alignment of our jaw joints, commonly known as temporomandibular joints. These joints play a crucial role in our jaw’s movement. 

Even the minor misalignment can lead to symptoms like clicking, popping, or grinding sounds when you open and close your mouth. If you are going through any such pain or discomfort or noises in the jaw while biting or chewing, then our TMJ specialist in Calgary is the suitable option for getting rid of your jaw pain. 

Temporomandibular joint pain is caused by multiple factors such as arthritis, genetics, congenital bone deformations, jaw trauma and others. Recurring actions like excessive gum chewing and teeth grinding can also aggravate the pain. At our clinic in Calgary, we treat patients with TMJ based on the cause and intensity of the problem. 

Some of the common issues that our TMJ specialists encounter among the patients are not related to periodontal disease or tooth decay but difficulty in chewing and biting, locking the jaw, and painful sensations while moving the jaws. 

The diagnosis process of TMJ disorder can vary from patient to patient as it involves various steps. Our team of expert TMJ specialists in Calgary will go through a series of steps to understand your problem’s root cause and offer the best possible treatment with long-term success.
