Experience Relief of Jaw Pain with TMJ Disorder Therapy

TMJ/TMD - BURNABY, BC

Realign Your Jaw to Alleviate Discomfort

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the muscle that connects your jaw to your skull. When this joint becomes overworked, damaged or inflamed, you may experience TMJ disorder (TMD). If you experience chronic TMD and TMJ symptoms such as pain or tenderness in the face and jaw joints, a limited ability to open the mouth wide, or frequent headaches and neck aches, you may benefit from neuromuscular dentistry services. We provide chronic TMD management procedures and TMJ treatment options that can improve your quality of life and help you maintain optimal oral health. Neuromuscular dentistry is a unique approach to dental treatment that focuses on correcting misalignment of the jaw. Our doctors at Norburn Dental Centre will need to determine what the optimal position of the jaw may be and can realign the jaw with several different treatments or procedures, such as cosmetic dental restorations, tooth recontouring treatment, or orthodox.

Our TMJ Treatments

Neuromuscular dentistry procedures can be very effective for correcting jaw misalignment and reducing pain, tension, and stress around the face, neck, and shoulders. You may be a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction procedures or minimally-invasive treatments that can relieve TMD symptoms such as chronic headaches, upper body pain, and tenderness around the jaw. Your treatment plan may include:

  • Ultra Low Frequency Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulation (ULF-TENS)
  • Placing a splint or mouth guard to stabilize the bite
  • Orthodontic work to restore proper alignment
  • Tooth recontouring procedures (equilibration)
  • Stretching and relaxation exercises
  • Cortisone shots to relieve inflammation and pain
  • Jaw replacement surgery (in extreme cases)
