Treating Jaw Complaints
We think beyond your teeth. Temporo-mandibular joint disorders that affect the jaw often cause pain or reduced movement of the jaw itself. Problems with the jaw and chewing muscles can cause headaches, tension, ear pain, tinnitus or chewing problems. We will advise you in detail about the diagnosis and possible treatments. Effective treatments include mouth guards, correction to chewing surfaces, and reconstruction of functional surfaces. It is often useful to accompany these with physical therapy.
