TMJ Montreal

TMJ stands for the articulation that joins the temporal bone (head) to the mandible bone (jaw). If there is an imbalance in these joints, cycle of pain or muscle spasm can occur. Some common results are:

  • Headaches
  • Earaches
  • Difficulty in opening and closing
  • A clicking or popping in the joint
  • A dull aching pain around the ears that spreads to the face.
  • Sore and painful jaw muscle
  • Clenching and grinding
  • Toothaches.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, an examination of your articulation by Dr. Berbari who is certified in TMJ disorders will help find the proper treatment to help reduce, stabilize or improve your condition. X-ray or in some cases an MRI will be necessary to complete the diagnosis and the proper care and treatments will be explained.

Several options of treatment are available and sometimes they can even be used in combination. For example: Balance in the joint can be restored by adjusting the bite (occlusion) which is called occlusal equilibration. An occlusal plate or splint, which is a plastic mouthpiece, can help restoring the harmony to the joints. In extreme severe cases, surgery may be necessary to repair the damage part of the joint.
