TMJ Treatment, Melbourne

TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disfunction is not just uncomfortable - it can affect your lifestyle and often, it’s difficult to find the source of the problem.

The jaw pain, headaches, face pain, fatigue and other discomforts caused by TMJ disfunction can be diagnosed and treated by the TMJ experts at Toorak Dental Studio. As experts in the musculoskeletal system, we can examine your jaw and your bite to determine what’s causing the issues, to help you return to your normal quality of life.

Ringing sounds in the ear are sometimes caused by problems related to the muscles, cartilage and ligaments of TMJ. If your dentist or doctor evaluates you and can determine the relation between your TMJ and tinnitus, they will be able to treat it in most cases.

By addressing the underlying problems, they can prescribe an appropriate treatment to cure your tinnitus.

Once diagnosed, TMJ disfunction can usually be treated immediately, and even patients that have suffered for years can experience fast relief from the symptoms. This, of course, depends on the severity of the condition and some patients require mouth reconstruction or oral splints - in which case the may require oral appliances and treatment that usually takes a few months.

TMJ treatment starts with the discussion of your symptoms and an analysis of your jaw, including the range-of-motion and the sounds it makes when you move it. If there seems to be a problem, your dentist or doctor will further examine the area using a CBCT scan or MRI.

The results of this examination are then used to diagnose and treat TMJ disorder. Treatment could be as simple as prescribing pain relief or muscle relaxants, or it could include drug-free physical therapies to improve the function of jaw muscles. In more severe cases, surgery may be required.
