TMJ/TMD

If you are having headache pain and/or jaw pain, you may be suffering with temporomandibular joint dysfunction/disorder (TMJ/TMD). Headaches are quite common, especially among women. About 90% of the population suffers from run-of-the-mill tension headaches. When these headaches are caused by TMJ, the pain is originating from the jaw, the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. Usually this occurs as a result of clenching or grinding teeth. It is a problem that occurs in about a third of the adult population and most sufferers tend to be between 20 and 40 years old.

Even though headaches and jaw pain caused by TMJ/TMD are not life threatening, the pain can be unbearable. With our dental care services, we can alleviate the pain and the other issues that develop from this disorder. Constant grinding of the teeth wears down the enamel over time. This causes the teeth to be more susceptible to dental caries. Since the grinding and clenching usually occurs during sleep, some people may not even be aware of the problem even though they are experiencing the symptoms.

Effective Diagnosis and Treatment

There is a series of tests which can ascertain whether or not TMJ/TMD is causing your headaches. These tests will also show if you have TMJ/TMD. If the tests show that you do have this disorder, our dentists will work with you to create a treatment plan that will help eliminate or lessen the pain and address the grinding and clenching.

TMJ/TMD is a correctable disorder and with the right treatment plan in place you should experience improvements in headache pain. The dentists at Dame Street Dental will work to successfully mitigate the discomfort you experience with this troublesome condition. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment to get the help you need to correct any jaw pain.

Testimonials

Exceptionally professional and welcoming. I had a dental emergency and no dentist would see me because I have no regular dentist in Ireland. This clinic fit me in the same day and did not try to extort me or charge a big amount. I will return in the future for regular dental care. I'm very pleased with the service and the receptionist is excellent, which makes a big difference to the whole patient experience.

I'm terrified of dentists but I have never felt more at ease than when I was here, I had an emergency appointment and they fit me in last minute, looked after me so well (even covered me with a gravity blanket) explained my options following my exam and just made the whole experience pleasant. Also the place looks like a spa and the prices are reasonable. The dentist, the dental nurse and the kind girl on reception are just lovely I will recommend Dame st. Dental to everyone.

I was visiting my son in Dublin during the Christmas week. I had an issue with my front tooth veneer, it fell off. I found out about Dame Street Dental via Internet recommendations. I have visited Dr. Mohammed Shirin and he recommended a crown treatment. I was extremely happy with his customer-focused approach and the quality of the treatment. Three weeks have passed and I am very happy with my front tooth. DR ISMAIL EREN CARDILOGIST NON-INVASIVE LABORATORY SISLI FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE PRIVATE HOSPITAL/ISTANBUL/TURKEY
