Headache and Jaw Pain Relief for Ottawa Residents
Does your jaw click or pop? Do you suffer from chronic headaches? These may be symptoms of a TMJ disorder– a condition that occurs when the jaw joints become misaligned. Our team at Smyth Dental Centre can correct TMJ disorders with a custom-fitted, intra oral appliance or other simple therapies.
You may not think that a misaligned jaw sounds like a big deal, but patients with TMJ disorder experience a host of debilitating problems, including:
- Clicking or popping jaw joints
- Headaches and migraines
- Facial, neck, back, and shoulder pain
- Sensitive teeth
- Worn, cracked, or chipped teeth
- Limited movement or locked jaw
If your jaw joints are misaligned, it means that your facial muscles are working overtime to find a comfortable resting position. This causes the chronic muscle tension, facial pain, and headaches that millions of people attempt to alleviate with medications.
In many cases, a simple, customized oral appliance can offer relief. However, if this solution doesn’t properly alleviate your symptoms, there are other treatment options available, such as physical therapy, drug therapy, and in severe cases, surgery. Our team will work closely with you in order to ensure you receive the attention and personalized methods you need to feel comfortable.
If you think you may suffer from TMJ disorder, contact Smyth Dental Centre for your consultation. We provide comprehensive care to residents of Ottawa, Gatineau, Central Ottawa, and Ottawa-East.
