Jaw Pain / Clenching and Grinding Relief
If you’re experiencing jaw pain, clicking in the jaw throughout the day, or especially when you wake in the morning, you could be suffering from temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD). Teeth wear (bruxism) is another common sign of this. Bruxism has been linked with factors such as anxiety, stress, alcohol consumption, cigarette smoking, caffeine, sleep apnoea and/or fatigue. This is a common condition, however if pain persists it can be quite overwhelming and debilitating. We offer a variety of treatment options including occlusal splints (night guards) and muscle relaxant injections. In addition, we also work closely with physiotherapists and ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists to ensure all possible causes are investigated.
