TMD Treatment & Headache Prevention

Patients who experience jaw discomfort may be experiencing TMD and require treatment to help with symptoms.


What are the Symptoms of TMD?

Do you feel pain when trying to open your mouth, or does it hurt to move your mouth from side to side?

You could be suffering from the common problem of Tempromandibular Joint pain or Tempromandibular Dysfunction. Other symptoms include:

  • Pain in the neck and/or shoulder
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Hearing loss or ear pain
  • Grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw while sleeping
  • Constantly feeling fatigued
  • Hearing a popping or grating sound, or any other noise in your jaw joints
  • Suffering from chronic headaches in your temples or above your eyes

What Does TMD Therapy Involve?

Because there can often be multiple causes for TMJ symptoms, there’s not a “set” way of treating these conditions.

The first step in any successful treatment is the proper diagnosis.

The team at New Minas Dental Centre can perform an evaluation of your symptoms and concerns and suggest a customized treatment therapy for your condition.

In many cases, we can work with you to identify other treatment partners — such as physiotherapists, chiropractors, cranio/mandibular specialists or even massage therapists — who will all work together to bring you relief.
