What does diagnosing TMJ involve?

TMJ could be a result of several different problems. Initially, your dentist will thoroughly examine the jaw area and bite, take x-rays, and review your dental history, in order to diagnose and recommend treatment.

Once diagnosis is attained, there are several methods for providing relief, and we will discuss your options with you.

Reasons for Treating TMJ

TMJ sufferers often report that their symptoms can worsen during periods of stress, and that outbreaks of the condition may lead to neck pain and dizziness.

The most common cause of TMJ is misalignment of the teeth. In some cases, your dentist can help realign or adjust the teeth without surgery.

Teeth grinding is another common symptom of TMJ and usually occurs at night. Left unaddressed, teeth grinding can eventually erode the structure of the teeth and may lead to other dental problems, such as eroded jawbones and loose teeth.

For these reasons, it is important for anyone experiencing the symptoms of TMJ to visit the dentist for an exact diagnosis.

If you are experiencing jaw pain, headaches or dizziness, you may have TMJ. Book an a consultation with our Calgary dentists today!
