Temporomandibular Disorders (TMJ/TMD)
Temporomandibular disorders, more commonly referred to as TMJ or TMD, can have an impact on both adults and children. TMD/TMJ is often a chronic and degenerative disorder and the pain and dysfunctions related to TMD/TMJ usually get worse over time. As the severity increases, the treatment becomes more complex which is why we urge patients of all ages to complete a comprehensive evaluation to determine the true cause of the symptoms that are being experienced as soon as they start to notice symptoms. It is common for patients to have jaw, head, face and/or neck pain when suffering from TMD/TMJ dysfunctions. This is an indicator of inflammation around the TM joint and can cause discomfort to spread to areas outside of the joint.
It is vital to find the right dental physician with advanced education that can bring together a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment. Our Centres of Excellence have developed relationships with chiropractors, ENTs and physical therapists (to name a few) that will bring you a specific treatment plan built for you and your diagnosis to ensure the best outcome from treatment.
Craniofacial Pain management covers a broad set of conditions that relate to the head, neck and shoulders that can be felt as facial pain. Many patients seek treatment for migraine or cluster headaches, not realizing that the pain in their head is in fact caused by nerves and muscles around your face and neck.
Common symptoms include: Daily Headaches, Waking with a Headache, Headcahe not responsive to Medications, Clenching your teeth
Our team of professionals at the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Center of Dubai understand and take the time to listen to your symptoms to reach a treatment plan that is best for you. They can appropriately diagnose your craniofacial pain condition and know how to conservatively and non-invasively manage your pain to improve your quality of life.
