TMJ is referred to as temporomandibular joint. TMJ symptoms may include pain in the jaw, locked jaw, aches in the ear, ringing in the ears, neck pain and teeth grinding which can lead to pain and discomfort. Some beneficial treatments we offer include mouth/night guards, physical therapy as well as counselling to help you understand the factors and behaviours that may aggravate your pain, so you can avoid them. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please call our office to schedule a consultation.
TENS (Transcutaneous Electro Neural Stimulation) is a specialized therapy designed to treat the pain associated with TMD by directing mild electrical pulses to your facial and jaw muscles. Patients who suffer from Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) are especially subject to discomfort during dental treatment. Therefore, our dental office offers use of the TENS to make your dental experience comfortable minimizing the discomfort you may have experienced in the past.
