Thornhill Family Dentistry
Our Thornhill dentists offer several options for TMJ treatments.
Do you recognize these 7 warning signs of TMJ?
- Pain in the face or neck area
- Pain in or around the ear or vertigo
- Stiffness in the jaw
- Difficulty chewing
- Trouble opening and closing the mouth
- Teeth that don’t come together properly
Symptoms of TMJ dysfunction are so diverse that someone suffering from them may go undiagnosed for years. TMJ disorders can be caused by various kinds of trauma, motor vehicle accidents, a blow to the head, sports injuries, falls, missing teeth, crooked teeth, an improper bite, old or ill fitting dentures, poor posture, cradling a phone on the shoulder and playing certain musical instruments. Dr. Terry Ciomyk, Dr. David McDowell and Dr. Susie Ang are general dentists with advanced training in the non-surgical management of TMJ disorders. A complete dental examination can guide Dr. Ciomyk, Dr. McDowell and Dr. Ang to appropriate treatment .
