TMJ (TMD) Therapy in Ottawa

Temporomandibular Joint pain or Temporomandibular Dysfunction is better known as TMJ or TMD. Symptoms include:

  • Problems with opening up your mouth or from side to side.
  • Pain in your neck and shoulder areas.
  • Problems with your ears, such as hearing loss, pain and ringing.
  • Grinding and clenching your teeth at night.
  • Constant tiredness.
  • Popping or grating sounds in your joint.
  • Frequent headaches or migraines.

TMJ can be caused by a variety of reasons, such as frequent teeth grinding, stress or injury. To get to the source of the problem, a proper diagnosis is required. Only by locating the root of the problem can we treat and stop your pain. Treatment may require other specialists such as massage therapists, chiropractors and physiotherapists. If you’re suffering from TMJ, contact Rideau Dental Centre to treat it once and for all.
