Jaw Pain / Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)

Excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching, also called bruxism, can damage the teeth and cause a number of difficult painful symptoms. Collectively, these are often referred to as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). If you suffer from any of the symptoms below contact us for more information on how we can help.

Symptoms of TMD include:

  • Pain on the chewing muscles and/or jaw point
  • Radiating pain in the face, jaw or neck
  • Jaw muscle pain or stiffness
  • Aching pain in and around the ears
  • Limited jaw movement or locking
  • Painful jaw clicking, popping or grinding when opening or closing the mouth
  • Headaches or migraines
  • A change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together.

There are different options for the treatment of grinding and Jaw pain. A mouthguard can be made to help protect the teeth, this can be worn during the day or night depending on your symptoms or a Cerezen device can be made.
