How Can Downtown Dental Centre Help Me?

Disorders and pain associated with TMJ/TJD are uncomfortable and we do not want you to have to suffer any longer. When you experience pain in your jaw, we ask that you please call our office and schedule an appointment right away.

Some patients may experience symptoms that range in severity from mild to extreme and it all depends on your condition. Some people are unable to go about their daily routines due to the TMJ/TMD pain and it causes a hiccup in their plans.

At Downtown Dental Centre, we will work with you to determine the cause of your pain and then create a treatment plan that puts an end to it. Some of our TMJ/TMD therapy includes:
  • Medication
  • Jaw adjustments or realignment
  • Night guards
  • Stress management
  • Dental appliances
The right treatment for you will depend on your current condition and the severity of it. A full consultation is required, so that our dentists can determine what will work best for you. During your consultation, you can expect x-rays to be taken and a full oral examination to be performed. Our dentists may also ask to see you bite down or ask you questions about stress, whether you clench your teeth at night, and similar questions to help identify a solution. You can also expect our dentists to perform small tests to determine how your facial muscles move and work when you bite down.
