TMJ/TMJD Treatment

Do you have a sore jaw?

You could be suffering from Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJD), a syndrome that occurs when the muscles around the jaw become inflamed, which sometimes happens as a result of clenching or grinding your teeth while you sleep, arthritis or injury.

What is the treatment for a sore jaw?

A night guard works to combat this issue by preventing your teeth from clenching and grinding while you sleep. At Glenora Family Dental in Edmonton, TMJ treatment starts with a consultation with Dr. VandenBrink, where he examines your jaw, discusses your symptoms, and may take x-rays to determine the appropriate course of treatment. This could lead to various treatment options that will help alleviate your symptoms, or in more extreme cases, a referral to a TMJD Specialist.

If you are experiencing dental or jaw pain, seek TMJD treatment from Glenora Family Dental as soon as possible – give us a call to learn more, (780) 452.5700!
