There are a number of possible reasons for this disorder to occur which include grinding teeth, injury, wear and tear of the joint, stress or an uneven bite.
The symptoms of this condition are usually jaw joint clicking (or popping), pain and difficulties eating. If untreated this can start to affect pain in and around the ear, the cheek and temple. It is also known to cause headaches and migraines.
Our dentists at Charisma Clinic can assess the condition and then determine the right course of treatment.
There are several TMJ treatment options according to individual conditions which can simply be a lifestyle change to surgical procedures where an oral and maxillofacial surgeon is required to operate on severe abnormal joint cases.
Dr. Talal Khalil, PhD
Hi, let me take this opportunity to introduce myself and provide you with some information about my professional background. My name is Dr. Talal Khalil (GDC No: 205679) and I graduated in General dentistry from Safarik University in Slovakia in 2002.
I started my career as a dentist working at the Louis Pasteur Faculty Hospital where I gained extensive experience in restorative and aesthetic dentistry. My interest in oral surgery and associated academic work grew whilst working with eminent dentists and oral surgeons at the faculty teaching hospital.
I continue to keep my knowledge and skills up to date by working alongside highly experienced and skilful professionals and attending courses and workshops to familiarise myself with latest procedures and techniques in dentistry and aesthetic procedures.
