TMJ treatment is performed to correct conditions that affect the function of the temporomandibular (TMJ) joints. These joints are located on either side of the jaw near each ear and connect the jawbone to the skull. They are two of the most frequently used joints in the body and play a significant role in eating, speaking, and making facial expressions.
If TMJ joints are not functioning properly, severe headaches, toothaches, or pain in the ear, jaw joint, or cheeks can result. Severe cases can even cause pain in the neck and shoulders. Patients with TMJ disorders may also have difficulty opening their mouths and experience jaw popping or clicking.
TMJ disorders can be caused by a number of factors, including teeth grinding, a misaligned bite, dislocation of the TMJ joint, arthritis, and wear and tear of the cartilage disks that pad TMJ joints. Our dentists are experienced in diagnosing and treating these conditions. TMJ treatment can take the form of mouth guards, jaw exercises, or TMJ bite therapy. We can help you alleviate painful TMJ symptoms and restore full functionality to these important joints. Dr. Kevin Philipow at our Macleod Dental Choice in Calgary offers TMJ treament as well as snoring appliances for patients.
Sedation Dentistry for Anxious Patients
At Dental Choice, we understand that some patients are nervous about receiving dental treatment. That is why we offer sedation options at some of our locations to help reduce dental anxiety, providing patients with a more comfortable and relaxing dental visit. Our Macleod Dental Choice location offers IV sedation, oral sedation, and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for adults only. For more information on sedation, visit our sedation page, or call us for more information.
Introducing... The Wand
Do you have a fear of needles? For those patients that have not been to our Macleod location, we offer "the wand" at this location. The wand is an injection device that's far less intimidating than a standard syringe needle. The look and feel of the wand makes administering anaesthetics less intimidating, which reduces dental anxiety in anxious patients. It also has the ability to freeze a single tooth. Request for the wand for your next appointment!
