Joint and myofascial pain

If you experience jaw pain, difficulty in chewing, limited mouth opening, or abnormal tooth wear, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). It's important to understand that your jaw is connected to your head by a small joint. Behind this joint is a disc that allows your mouth to open and close. If this disc is misaligned, it can result in pain and dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The symptoms of this disorder are numerous, and its impact on your daily life can be significant.

To determine if you have temporomandibular joint dysfunction, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Carrier and his qualified team. During this appointment, he will conduct a physical examination of your jaw and face to make a diagnosis.

Once the disorder is confirmed, a two-phase treatment plan will be proposed to restore balance to your teeth, muscles, and jaw.

Using electromyography and kinesiography systems, our team will measure facial muscle tensions to find a comfortable jaw position. Subsequently, a custom-made orthotic device can be created. This phase of treatment is known as neuromuscular dentistry.

Once balance is restored, a second phase of treatment is necessary. This may involve orthodontic treatment or the placement of crowns. The goal is to ensure long-term durability of the treatment and proper jaw position.
