TMJ in Blenheim
Do you suffer from chronic jaw pain and headaches, or a popping sensation when you open your mouth? Your symptoms might be signs of TMJ disorder. TMJ is what we call conditions that cause pain in the joint between your jaw and your skull. We provide TMJ diagnosis and treatment to help relieve these symptoms.
TMJ symptoms can be caused by a number of factors including stress, genetics, injury, or misaligned bite. Diagnosis is a bit like detective work as we identify possible causes. We’ll look at your overall health and stress level, check your jaw alignment, and examine your jaws and mouth.
TMJ treatment depends on what’s causing your symptoms. Treatments can include medication, massage therapy, stress-reduction, and orthodontic correction.
Call us today to book an examination if you’re experiencing jaw pain or other symptoms.
