Jaw Pain & TMJ Treatment | Teeth Grinding & Mouth Guards | North York, ON

Frequent headachestight shoulders and jaw pain can all be caused by TMJ issues or bruxism. We offer TMJ and jaw pain treatment in our dental clinic.

TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint. It is the main jaw joint that can become sore or painful when overused or misaligned, which causes a disorder known as TMD, or temporomandibular disorder.

Over time, the pain can become greater, the muscle can fatigue or lock, and the teeth can be damaged by the repetitive stress of malocclusion.

Bruxism is the clinical term for teeth grinding- something many people do at night without even realizing it.

Bruxism can also cause tooth sensitivity to hot or cold, gum recession, where gums pull away from the teeth, and small chips in the teeth known as abfractions.
