It may be stress, previous injury or tooth loss, habitual clenching, gum-chewing or a part of ageing, but for whatever reason, your jaw aches, you’re having difficulty chewing and it affects how you eat.  Other possible causes?  Restorations such as crowns, fillings, inlays and onlays that have worn over time and no longer align or function as they need to.

You may be suffering from temporomandibular disorder (TMD) - a misalignment of the jawbone where it connects to your skull.  Once we diagnose the cause of your TMD, the solution could be as simple as adjusting or replacing one or more restoration or providing you with a nightguard to maximize your jaw position and relieve our discomfort while you sleep.

Until you see us for treatment, you might be able to alleviate symptoms by chewing on both sides of your mouth, de-stressing, not chewing gum and performing basic jaw-stretching exercises.
