Your Winnipeg dentists at Fort Rouge Dental Group offer therapy to help relieve pain and discomfort in your jaw and supporting muscles, often caused by TMJ disorder.
The two joints located in the front of each ear and that connected to the jawbone are the temporomandibular referred to as “TMJ.” These joints are responsible for biting, chewing, swallowing food, speaking and facial expressions. Pain and discomfort in this area of the jaw and associated muscles is referred to as TMJ disorder.

How do I know if I have TMJ disorder?
If you are experiencing jaw pain, popping or clicking of the jaw, headaches, an off-bite, or unexplained tooth pain you may be suffering from TMJ disorder.
TMJ disorder is most commonly caused by clenching or grinding of the teeth during sleep.
How is TMJ disorder treated?
Once diagnosed, your Winnipeg Fort Rouge dentist can help relieve your TMJ symptoms through orthodontic intervention or a specialized night guard designed to alleviate some of the stress on the teeth.
