TMJ (TMD) Therapy in Kingston and Napanee

It’s common for many of our patients to complain about Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) pain or Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD). Symptoms can vary but can include:

· Trouble opening your mouth / Jaw pain
· Pain in your shoulders or neck (most notably when waking up)
· Issues with your ear, such as ears ringing, pain or hearing loss
· Headaches and migraines on a regular basis
· Clenching or grinding your teeth at night
· Feeling tired or drained
· Popping sounds in your joint


TMJ can be caused by any number of reasons, including bite problems, injury or a combination of factors. Because symptoms are so varied, the best way to correct TMJ / TMD is by first undergoing a thorough diagnosis. Only by finding the source of the problem(s) can we properly address what’s causing you pain. Treatment can be multi-faceted and we may recommend an oral appliance, orthodontics or dental work. Depending on your case, outside specialists may be recommended- IE physiotherapy, chiropractors, massage therapy.
