Safe and Effective TMJ Treatment in Mississauga

The temporomandibular joint refers to the joint situated in front of the ear allowing jaw movement. A structural imbalance between the jaw and the skull can lead to a chronic degenerative condition knowns as temporomandibular disorder or TMD. Our dentists at GD Orthodontics are dedicated to effective TMJ treatment in Mississauga, while ensuring your comfort.

TMD Symptoms

Some of the common symptoms of TMJ include headaches, trouble opening your mouth and jaw locking. The pain caused by this affliction might affect chewing and swallowing of any food item.

Causes of TMD

Habits such as grinding your teeth or clenching can tire your jaw muscles, causing continuous muscle spasms, sore muscles and tissue damage. TMD can also occur because of:

  • Improper shape of TMJ

  • Joint diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis

  • Injured joint or tissue around it

Treating TMJ

Usually, the TMJ disorder can be cured without treatment. To reduce pain yourself, you can:


 Apply ice pack on your jaw for a few minutes, multiple times in a day

 Avoid eating hard food items

 Rest your jaw

 Reduce stress through physiotherapy sessions


We also offer other treatments such as Invisalign and surgical orthodontics.

Frequently Asked Questions

 Do clicking jaw joints indicate that I have TMD?

Popping and clicking jaw joints are some of the symptoms of TMD. Consult our experts without delay if you experience them.


 Does TMJ disorder require surgery?

TMJ can be cured non-surgically, allowing you to get back to your normal way of life such as chewing and talking. 


 Are headaches caused by TMD?

Clenching your teeth can put undue pressure on your jaw joints resulting in headaches. 


 Which are the exercises to reduce TMD pain?

Activities that can help you reduce your jaw pain include:

  • Pressing your chin bone with your thumb lightly and trying opening your mouth
  • Keeping your tongue on the roof of your mouth and trying opening your jaw without moving your tongue
  • Stretching your neck by placing your hands across your chest
