TMJ Dentist in Melbourne

Chapel Gate Dental can help patients who are experiencing issues relating to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), such as teeth grinding and bruxism. If you’ve been suffering from pain and discomfort, our TMJ dentist in Melbourne is here to help.

What is the Temporomandibular Joint?

The TMJ is the hinge connecting the jawbone to the skull, allowing a person to speak, chew and yawn. When issues such as teeth grinding and bruxism occur, a range of uncomfortable symptoms can be experienced with the TMJ, including jaw pain, headaches, earaches, facial pain, and difficulty opening or closing the mouth. If you suspect you’re clenching or grinding your teeth, our St Kilda dentists may recommend a mouth guard for grinding teeth.

How Our TMJ Dentist Can Help

At Chapel Gate Dental, we’re committed to providing effective TMJ dental services that are tailored to your unique needs. The dentists at our jaw pain clinic have a deep understanding of the intricate mechanics of the temporomandibular joint and the surrounding muscles, enabling them to pinpoint the cause of issues such as teeth grinding.

Using state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and techniques, we’ll conduct a thorough examination and recommend a suitable option to alleviate discomfort, such as a TMJ appliance or a night guard for clenching. A custom-fitted TMJ appliance may help to alleviate jaw tension and provide proper jaw alignment, while a TMJ mouth guard can help prevent damage to the teeth due to bruxism (teeth grinding) or assist with symptoms of sleep apnoea.

The TMJ System

Chapel Gate Dental may recommend a TMJ oral appliance from the TMJ System™. Appliances in this system are used to help relax jaw and neck muscles, relieve pressure on the TMJ, prevent teeth grinding and reduce head and neck pain.

Available TMJ dental guard options include:

  • TMJ Appliance™
  • TMD Appliance™
  • TMJ-MBV™
  • Bruxogard™ Soft
  • Bruxogard™ Hard
