As part of your extensive oral examination, we always look at your jaw joints. If you suffer from clicking, jaw pain or headaches, it is not always necessarily tooth-related. You may be suffering from temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) and may need a referral to a physiotherapist or require a splint which we can custom make for you.
Grinding or clenching your teeth (or bruxism) is common and not a dirty word! However can cause pain that is often misconstrued as dental pain with associated headaches. This can also be fixed with a splint. Our dentists are here to help decide which would be the best type for you.
