TMJ / TMD Therapy in North York, Toronto
Do you feel pain when opening your mouth? Do you find it difficult to open or close your mouth easily? You may have TMJ symptoms. The TMJ (or Temporomandibular Joint) is the joint connecting your lower jaw to your upper jaw. This joint consists of many moving parts. When some of these parts are strained and/or pop out of position, the jaw joint can suffer pain and reduced mobility.
Other symptoms can include:
-pain or stiffness in the head or neck
-ringing in the ears
-grinding of the teeth or clenching of the jaw during sleep
-hearing a popping or creaking sound when moving your jaw
If you suspect you may have TMJ symptoms, ask Dr. Chung to have a look.
