Safe and effective TMJ treatment in Armadale

The temporomandibular joint, otherwise known as TMJ, is the connection between the jawbone and the skull that makes it possible to open and close your mouth. We all have two TMJs, with one located on either side of the head, and they work together to help us chew, speak and swallow. 

TMJs

TMJs have a disc that cushions the load and enables the jaw to open wide and rotate. If a problem prevents the TMJs from working properly, it may result in a painful TMJ disorder, often caused by:

  • Trauma or injury
  • Bruxism or grinding
  • Clenching
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis 

At Acorn Dental Centre in Armadale, we have a specially trained team that can provide safe and effective TMJ treatment. Correct diagnosis is a crucial step in the TMJ treatment process. We can examine you for joint and muscle tenderness, popping, clicking and any difficulty with movement.
