TMJ / TMD Treatment

If you are having headache pain and/or jaw pain, you may be suffering with temporomandibular joint dysfunction/disorder (TMJ/TMD). This is a chronic condition, in which headaches (particularly among female patients), a stiff neck, sore jaw muscles or tinnitus (constant or intermittent ringing in your ears) are common symptoms. About 90% of the population suffers from run-of-the-mill tension headaches. When these headaches are caused by TMJ, the pain originates 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. If your grinding at night is causing damage to your teeth, your dentist may recommend you to be fitted for a custom nightguard

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. One simple and non-invasive option is the administration at the clinic of Botox muscle-relaxant injections to take the strain and pressure off your clenching jaw.

Our comprehensive dental practice is made up of a team who believes in providing great dental care with adherence to the highest standards and ideals. TMJ/TMD is a correctable disorder and with the right treatment plan in place you should experience improvements in headache-related pain. If your jaw pain is interfering with your life, please don’t suffer in silence, but reach out and contact our practice.

The dentists at Dame Street Dental will work to successfully mitigate the discomfort you experience with this troublesome condition. We understand how treatment helps you find relief from your current discomfort and will help you to maintain great dental health in the future.

Testimonials

I cannot recommend this place enough! I was booked in short notice for an examination yesterday after 3 days of excruciating pain. From the moment I checked in at reception I was filled with such ease. I haven’t attended a dental practice in 2 years after an AWFUL wisdom tooth extraction with my local dentist. I met with Dr. Shirin and his lovely assistant who made my whole experience phenomenal. I had explained how nervous I was due to my last experience and I just felt completely heard and understood. They both did everything they could to keep me at ease and talked me through absolutely everything. I had my wisdom tooth extracted which was completely pain free this time, Dr. Shirin took the time out to ensure I couldn’t feel anything and throughout the extraction told me when I would feel pressure and helped me manage my breathing. After my previous extraction I was off work for 2+ weeks and left the clinic inconsolable, with Dame Street Dental I left laughing, smiling and chatting pain free and feel well enough to return to work tomorrow! I really cannot recommend this place enough, I will never attend another dental clinic again and for the first time ever I am looking forward to my next visit,Thank you Dame Street Dental!!!

Dr. Ksenija Was very good and gentle. She explained every step when I had my wisdom tooth extracted. Staff was brilliant and very kind too. Will definitely recommend.

For someone who’s been anxious about the dentist for years, I’d just like to say how lovely it was coming in for a checkup. Dr Lisa Boland and her colleagues were very warm and welcoming from the start. They explained exactly what was happening and gave me a comprehensive treatment plan laying out a timeline and costs for the future. I would wholly recommend Dr Boland and the clinic to anyone who may have any fears or anxieties about going to the dentist.

I attended Dame Street Dental for an examination and a filling. All the staff here are exceptionally friendly. Dr. Alison Quirke was my dentist and she was absolutely brilliant in terms of her professionalism, empathy and, care. She talked me through the entire process and really set me at ease: yes, I was nervous beforehand. Alison’s team were also excellent: loved the playlist in the background. Overall, one the most professional (and enjoyable actually) experiences at a dentist. Thank you so much. Dr. Seamus Kelly.

Great dental clinic, recommend it to everyone. Special thanks to dr. Mohammed Abed for being patient with me and explaining every move.
Bernard Ljekaj
Really quick and warm service. Deducting a star as I was asked if I wanted x-rays as it's free with my examination, but was later asked to pay it. A bit uncertain if it's an honest mistake or a scam operation, so just deducting one star for it as I was reimbursed after asking.
