Holistic TMJ Therapy

The temporomandibular joint is what connects the upper and lower jaws and is responsible for movement when you talk, chew or bite. When this jaw is stressed due to habits such as clenching and grinding teeth, it results in severe pain and a condition regarded as TMJ disorder or TMD. Patients who suffer from TMD experience pain in the jaws, shoulder, neck and face. Treatment involves a series of therapies or exercise to alleviate the pain and tension on the jaws.

Are you suffering from TMJ disorder ?

For most people with temporomandibular joint disorders, the jaw often feels painful when they try to open the mouth widely. Another common symptom is a clicking sound on the jaw joint when you try to open or close the mouth. In some cases, swelling can occur on the face, neck or shoulder. In extreme cases, TMJ disorders can make it difficult to eat, chew or talk.

Treatment for TMJ disorders

At Smiles on Queen, we utilize a whole-body approach to treating TMD. Research indicates that TMD can be due to a variety of factors, such as sleep apnea, stress, diet, tooth alignment issues, and neuromuscular disorders. Due to its complex nature, therefore, each patient is treated individually to alleviate their symptoms, and a one-size-fits-all approach to treating TMD is never taken.

First, our dentist will perform an evaluation to determine the severity of the condition as well as the patient’s unique needs. We may recommend using a mouthguard or splint to prevent clenching or grinding of teeth, which may worsen the condition. If you experience nighttime clenching or grinding, a night guard can help relieve the pressure on the muscles and joints, and thereby prevent migraines/headaches caused by TMJ disorders.

Some patients will respond better to lifestyle changes and a more holistic approach to TMJ therapy. Our dentists may recommend a range of exercises that are proven to help alleviate symptoms by relaxing tense muscles and increasing blood flow to the sore areas of your face and jaws. Heat/cold therapy to sore muscles may be recommended. Your sleep pattern and habits can also be monitored, and sometimes, essential oils can be added to your therapy to improve the quality of your sleep and naturally ease your symptoms. Our dentists can also perform TMJ bite therapy in order to alleviate the pain.

When to visit a dentist

If you experience pain in your jaws, tenderness of the muscles of your face, or an increased frequency of headaches, it is important to visit a dentist because you could be suffering from TMD. Visit us today for an effective treatment for TMJ disorder.

This place has such an amazing staff. The minute you walk in through the door all the way to surgery. I'm not usually the biggest fan of dentists but Dr. Hung made my wisdom teeth removal so smooth and calm that I enjoyed every minute of it. I'm usually anxious and overwhelmed walking into a dentists' office but it was not the same in this situation. Really happy to have chosen this place to work with me taking out my wisdom teeth. Just absolutely amazing.

The best dentist I've been to in my life. Modern systems and tools with an extraordinary staff that do an amazing job of explaining what is happening to your teeth. They are well versed with techniques and strategies to help you maintain excellent oral hygiene. Kind, courteous and professional every step of the way from reception to the chair. Affordable and transparent with their billing so you wont have to worry about hidden costs or extra charges.

Me, my husband and my daughter were in the clinic for the first time last week. The place is well equipped, organized and clean. Every procedure performed was explained with clarity and attention and we felt very safe. I don’t want to go anywhere else. The staff and doctors are very kind and gentle, amazing experience!

My experience with both Dr Hung and Dr Norsen has been great and their office staff are very welcoming! I was well informed in details of my treatments and felt safe and secure for them to perform it. Both dentist are very gentle and does a phenomenal job. I was happy with my filling when it was done and I'd recommend these guy to every one. 😄

This was by far one of the best dental experiences I've ever had. I have a huge fear of the dentist and was open about my fears upon arrival. Dr. Norsen was kind, caring and catered to my needs and phobia. I 100% recommend this dental facility. I also felt nothing while receiving my fillings and I'm very hard to freeze and had a lot of work that needed to be done. Over all an awesome experience for the dentist.

I was referred to this office by a friend because they offer IV sedation. I was very anxious at the dentist before but I was able to remove my wisdom teeth and I did not feel pain or discomfort. The dentist Dr. Lawrence was confident and told me what I was to expect afterward in terms of minor swelling and they also told me to come back if I have any problems but I am fine and happy. Overall I am happy this office was able to see me and they are great.

I am beyond grateful to the staff at the Smiles On Queen. I until the past 6 months had allowed my health and especially my dental health to rapidly decline. I had avoided the dentist for close to a decade and had a lot of fear, shame and embarrassment regarding the state of my teeth. From the moment I entered the office and furthermore on my call to book my appointment I was met with a degree of compassion and understanding that quite honestly has left me overwhelmed. The care, patience and expertise of the hygienist was extraordinary. Additionally the receptionist was equally as kind and understanding. Thank you - you have done so much for my self esteem - I can smile again without having to worry about the appearance of my teeth. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

This dental office is staffed with some of the best people you will ever meet. First of all I would like to say that I’m really afraid dentists (I think its dentistophobia 😊), I've been to over 5 different ones with the same negative results from all. My mother is a cancer survivor and suggested that I check out her dental office...so I did. I was greeted by a team of fantastic people concerned with nothing but my well being. These people are angels sent here to help others in a time of difficulty, it is, honestly an absolutely amazing place.
