Jaw Pain TMJ-TMD Treatment In Toronto

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD disorders) refers more generally to a group of jaw–related conditions that can cause patients pain in the muscle areas of their head, face, ear, neck, throat, shoulder or even back.

Jaw Pain TMJ-TMD Treatment

At Fortinsky Dentistry, we believe that it is necessary to treat the cause of the disorder to eliminate the symptoms rather than giving temporary relief. Our holistic approach addresses the jaw joint factors related to the pain by restoring proper function and improving overall health.

Our approach, Oral System Biology (OSB), looks at how the mouth can impact the health of a person leading to symptoms of pain and discomfort. Our goal is to re-establish the balance between all the oral structures leading to muscle relaxation , comfort, and improved health.

OSB is different from many of the contemporary approaches to jaw function in that with OSB, the tongue is considered vital to the balance of the mouth structures, so an oral appliance is designed to support it.

Evaluation of the patient is done through history taking, cephalometric (profile) X-ray, models of the teeth and critical care monitoring (BP, oxygen saturation, pulse). The purpose of treatment with the appliances is to restore oral/mouth function only, no medical condition is treated through this therapy, rather only oral function is balanced.

If you suffer from jaw pain, schedule a consultation with a dentist today to help ensure your optimal long-term health!
