At Hog's Back Dental Centre in Ottawa, our dentist offers therapy to try to realign your bite and help relieve the symptoms associated with temporomandibular disorder (TMD).
Once you have been diagnosed with TMD, our dentist can determine the treatment that is best suited for your needs.
Typically treatment for TMD will follow three steps:
Step 1: Relieve muscle spasm and pain
Step 2: Stabilize the Bite
Step 3: Long-Term Management
Painful Symptoms of TMD Include
- Jaw joint pain
- Facial pain
- Clenching or grinding
- Sensitive teeth
- Neck pain
