Dr. Robert Axelrad, Brampton Dentist

The chances are that you’ve heard the term TMJ spoken in a dental office: But what do they mean?

TMJ stands for the temporomandibular joint, which connects the lower jaw (mandible) to the skull (temporal bone). When that joint is misaligned or damaged in any way, it can cause a countless number of health problems – known as TMJ disorders.

Common TMJ Disorders

TMJ disorders most commonly cause debilitating headaches but also cause countless other problems, including:

  • dizziness
  • jaw stiffness
  • earaches
  • ringing in the ears
  • eye pain
  • problems swallowing
  • teeth that don’t line up
  • neck pain
  • and more.

Dr. Axelrad assesses and treats TMJ disorders of every kind. These range from minor muscle spasms to misaligned jaws that require temporary “splints” to stabilize a bite to the more severe damage caused by traumatic events (i.e. car accidents) that may require oral surgery.

Are you wondering if you have a TMJ disorder? Other TMJ symptoms, in addition to headaches and the painful maladies listed above, include a clicking sound in the jaw when a patient’s mouth opens, loss of hearing, dizziness and trouble balancing, or general ear congestion.

If you or someone you know suffers from pain in the jaw, face, head, neck and or shoulders, you may be experiencing a temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). Find fast relief from TMJ pain. Call Dr. Robert Axelrad Dental Office in Brampton at (905) 791-3867  to learn how we can help.
