At Excellence In Dentistry in Brisbane we will work closely with you to assess your oral health and determine what is the best course of action for you.
What is TMD?
TMD (Temporomandibular Disorder) is a common but serious condition in which the joint that connects the upper and lower jaws becomes misaligned, causing problems ranging from tooth grinding and jaw problems to migraine headaches.
TMD can be caused by a number of different things. In some cases, it is the result of injury or dental disease and can cause a very wide range of symptoms, from mild to serious, including:
Clicking, grinding and popping of the jaw
Difficulty moving the jaw, including opening and closing the mouth
Migraines, Headaches and neck aches
Locking or soreness or other pain around the face and jaw
Our approach to TMD treatment:
- Treatment planning and goal setting
- Damage control
- Repair and Rebuild
Through this, it is our intention to move towards health and away from disease and by doing so improve oral health, structure and aesthetics.
TMD presents the same symptoms as a number of other disorders which can make it difficult to diagnose. However, because there are some unique symptoms (e.g. your jaw clicking and popping), a dentist at Excellence In Dentistry will be able to assess your oral health and determine if you have TMD.
