TMJ (TMD) Therapy in Waterloo & Kitchener, Ontario

Is your jaw sore or painful? Is it difficult opening your mouth or moving it from side to side? If so, you may have Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) pain or Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD).

 

Common sitcoms of this TMJ (TMD) include:

 
  • Pain in the jaw, neck, or shoulders
  • Ear-related issues, such as ringing or hearing loss
  • Popping or grating sounds in the jaw joint
  • Teeth clenching or grinding
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Headaches or migraines
 

TMJ is caused when there is dysfunction with the TMJ joint. This is the joint that connects your jawbone to your skull. Fortunately, TMJ pain can be effectively treated by Dr. Karen J. Lee, your TMJ Kitchener & Waterloo dentist.

 

The first step to ensuring you receive the appropriate treatment is with a proper diagnosis. This is because TMJ can be caused by a variety of things, including injury, damage, or even stress. Once we thoroughly examine all aspects of your condition, we will create a treatment plan customized for your specific needs.

 

Depending on your case, we may recommend other professional practitioners, such as chiropractors, physiotherapists, cranial/mandibular specialists or massage therapists. We are fully committed and will work with you to ensure your TMJ pain is eliminated.
