TMJ Pain and Your Bite

General Dentist and Cosmetic Dental Services in Edmonton, Alberta

Posted: June 21, 2012

When your bite is misaligned, it is not uncommon for TMJ pain to follow. Your bite impacts the structure and function of your jaw. When it is misaligned, it can cause additional strain on the muscles and joints in and surrounding your jaw, leading to neuromuscular dental problems such as TMJ/TMD.

When you have a misaligned bite, there are a number of things Edmonton, Alberta dentist Dr. Christine Fialka-Eshenko can do to ease pain and restore function. If your misaligned bite is caused by malocclusion, it may be necessary to look at orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign®. With orthodontic treatment, your bite can be realigned and comfort and strength can be restored.

Neuromuscular Dentistry

If the misaligned bite is not caused by malocclusion but rather by muscular or skeletal problems in and around your jaw, neuromuscular dentistry may be the best solution for you. Treating TMJ/TMD is most frequently accomplished with the use of dental appliances including mouthguards and oral splints. These noninvasive, nonsurgical solutions are often successful in relieving pain and encouraging your jaw to relax and realign.

The most effective treatment for your TMJ pain is best determined during your TMJ evaluation with Dr. Fialka-Eshenko.

If you are suffering from TMJ pain in or around Edmonton, Alberta, please contact Focus on Smiles to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Fialka-Eshenko today.
