Temporal-mandibular joint/TMJ (jaw) rehabilitation

Temporomandibular joint(TMJ) dysfunction can cause painful clicking, stiffness and inability to open the mouth wide. This can be following surgery (i.e. wisdom tooth extraction), jaw clenching/grinding due to stress or direct physical injury to the joint. A thorough assessment will identify the cause of the dysfunction. Rehabilitation will addresses the imbalances in the TMJ, corrects TMJ disc malalignment and rehabilitates poor TMJ biomechanics. A home program will assists the patient to continue with rehabilitation at home.
