TMJ, Barrie & Innisfil, ON

We are prepared to help you determine if you have TMJ and to help you manage its effects.

TMJ

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) is a condition that occurs when the hinge that connects the lower and upper jaw stops working correctly. As one of the most complex hinges in the entire body, your jaw joint is responsible for moving the bottom of your jaw backward, side-to-side, and forward. If you have TMJ, it may feel like your jaw gets “stuck” when you try to open your mouth, speak, or chew, and your jaw may also make clicking or popping noises.

Although the exact cause of TMJ is often difficult to determine, at Northern Horizon Dental, the staff members at our offices in Barrie and Innisfil, Ontario are prepared to help you manage its effects. We recommend scheduling an appointment with us to discuss your TMJ if you notice:

  • Your jaw clicks or pops when you open your mouth
  • Your jaw muscles are extremely tender
  • The way your upper and lower teeth fit together has changed suddenly
  • Consistent pain when you chew or open your mouth widely

Depending on your symptoms, we will then determine what approach is best to eliminate your discomfort. For example, we may recommend wearing an appliance, such as a bite plate that is custom-made to fit your mouth, to reduce the effects of grinding and clenching your teeth on your jaw.

At Northern Horizon Dental, we are here to help you maintain your dental health now and in the future. Contact us today if you think you have TMJ and schedule an appointment with one of our offices.
