TMJ Treatment

Do you suffer from a stiff neck, worn teeth, headaches, popping jaw joints, back pain or ear aches? Not only is this uncomfortable and painful but it can also signify that you are one of the many sufferers of TMJ Dysfunction. TMJ is a common problem which often remains undiagnosed for long periods of time. The TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is your jaw joint that attaches the lower jaw to the skull. TMJ dysfunction causes disruption to basic functions such as chewing, swallowing, yawning and breathing, coughing and talking which can in turn cause these symptoms. Treatment options can vary depending on the diagnosis. Our experience staff at Newtown Dental Care offer a range of treatment options depending on the nature of the dysfunction, including:

  •  Home care for a short period
  •  Use of anti-inflammatory agents
  •  Splints (several types available)
  •  Equilibration of the teeth
  •  Stabilisation with a combination of the above

Of you suffer from any of the above symptoms or would like more information contact our friendly team to arrange an appointment.
