Jaw Locking

Lock Jaw From TMJ

Suffering With a Locked Jaw From TMJ?

If you’re experiencing limited jaw movement or lock jaw from TMJ, you’ve come to the right place. Our highly skilled team of dental professionals specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, including jaw locking. We understand the impact that TMJ issues can have on your daily life, and we are committed to providing effective solutions to help you regain your jaw’s full range of motion and improve your overall quality of life.

Jaw locking occurs when the temporomandibular joint, which connects the jawbone to the skull, becomes misaligned or dysfunctional. This condition can cause sudden episodes of your jaw getting stuck in an open or closed position, making it difficult to speak, chew, or even yawn. If left untreated, jaw locking can lead to chronic pain, muscle tension, headaches, and even further joint damage. That’s why seeking timely treatment is crucial to prevent the condition from worsening.

At TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of the South Shore, we utilize advanced diagnostic techniques to identify the underlying causes of your jaw locking. Our comprehensive evaluations include a thorough examination of your jaw joints, teeth, muscles, and bite. Based on our findings, we develop personalized treatment plans tailored to your specific needs.

Our range of treatment options for jaw locking includes conservative therapies, such as physical therapy, pain management techniques, and the use of oral appliances to reposition the jaw and relieve stress on the TMJ. In some cases, we may recommend orthodontic treatments or bite adjustments to address underlying dental issues that contribute to jaw locking. For more severe cases, surgical intervention may be necessary, but we always explore non-invasive options first.

Don’t let jaw locking control your life. Contact TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of the South Shore today to schedule a consultation. Our compassionate team is dedicated to providing you with exceptional care and helping you find long-term relief from jaw locking, allowing you to enjoy a pain-free, unrestricted jaw movement once again.
