What is TMJ Disorder?
TMJ is a shortened term for the temporo-mandibular joint, which is the joint that connects your jawbone to the skull. Because it gets extensive use throughout the day and night, it can be prone to muscle spasms, stiffness and misalignments that cause pain in the face, teeth, jaw and head.
Because TMJ issues are due to a wide range of factors, we offer numerous solutions here at Pitt St. Dental Centre.

When left untreated, the causes behind TMJ disorder can lead to worse problems including damaged teeth or serious health issues.
