Treatments for jaw joint problems and TMJD
TMJD, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, makes it difficult for the jaw joint to open and close. The condition is usually characterised by a dull ache in and around the ear, cheekbone or neck, a headache, a clicking or similar noise when you move your jaw and even jaw locking. If you have any of these, or similar symptoms it’s important that you get the problem diagnosed by a dentist.

One of the commonest causes of TMJD is teeth grinding so we may recommend that you wear a custom made splint at night, to improve the way your upper and lower teeth fit together.
