TMD/TMJ Treatment Near You
What is Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD/TMJ)?
What is the Cause of TMD/TMJ?
There is no single known cause for TMD/TMJ, but it is understood that grinding and clenching your teeth, chronic stress, and arthritis all play a role in the development of TMD/TMJ. This disorder is most common in women and often occurs between the ages of 20 and 40.
If you require TMD/TMJ treatment in SE Calgary, our dentist will begin by performing a physical evaluation of your jaw. They will feel your joint and listen for any popping or clicking sounds. Our dentist may also take x-rays of your jaw or send you for an MRI or CT scan to get a better idea of the nature of your condition.
