Why do I have a clicking sound in my jaw?

Man holding jaw from pain If you’re experiencing jaw pain, a clicking sound when you chew, or a locking jaw, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint dysfunction, sometimes referred to as TMD but more often as TMJ. We can help treat this dysfunction in our dental clinic.

At Park Place Dental, our Barrie, ON dentist has a lot of experience treating TMJ disorders, which is the joint that connects your jaw to your skull. When this jaw does not function properly, it can lead to jaw pain. We generally treat TMJ with BOTOX, and we are a BOTOX provider in Barrie, ON.

BOTOX is used in migraine therapy, to smooth out wrinkles, to help prevent teeth grinding during sleep, and in other specific issues like TMJ. It is injected with a small needle by our skilled Barrie, ON dentist, and it goes on to relax the muscles to help bring pain relief to those suffering TMJ pain.

Possible Signs of TMJ

  • Jaw pain
  • Headache
  • Neck pain
  • Jaw clicking
  • Jaw locking
