Learn the Causes of a TMJ Disorder

Your upper and your lower jaw meet in a joint. That joint is also host to many muscles. If it gets out of alignment, you can experience symptoms like the ones listed above. While we can’t be certain what causes TMJ disorder, we do suspect certain contributing factors, such as:

  • Stress
  • Arthritis
  • Trauma to your jaw
  • Muscle strain
  • Teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • and other factors

Teeth grinding isn’t always, but can be, a contributor to TMJ. If you’re grinding your teeth in your sleep or even during the day, the muscles in your jaw don’t have an opportunity to relax. You’re also putting additional pressure on your teeth that can cause them to wear down prematurely or even make your teeth fracture. If you’ve damaged your teeth, we can repair them with restorative dentistry.

If you’re struggling with teeth grinding, you should discuss it with your Winnipeg, MB dentist during your next visit to Lakewood Dental Centre. It may also be possible for us to treat you for sleep apnea if snoring or other sleep-related breathing issues are keeping you from a full night’s sleep.

Each patient is different, and TMJ disorder can present with various symptoms. So, Lakewood Dental Centre likes to create a customized treatment plan for every patient. Your plan could include the use of a TENS unit to treat muscles spasms and relax your jaw. We’ve also used physiotherapy and other more in-depth treatments. Benefits can also be adjunctive to dental therapy with other modalities.
