TMJ pain relief at Yandina Dental

In many cases, painful symptoms of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) syndrome can be reduced and managed at Yandina Dental.

TMD (temporomandibular disorder) is becoming more and more common and we receive referrals from a number of clinics on the Sunshine Coast for management of TMD.

We work with Physiotherapists, Sleep Physicians, ENT’s and Head and Neck surgeons when necessary to help provide relief of this painful condition.

TMD commonly occurs in two main ways:

  • Muscle pain which is the most common form and can cause mild and severe pain and headaches, and
  • Jaw Joint pain- due to problems in the joint capsule, disk and jaw joint bones.

What is TMD?

The temporomandibular joint does a lot of work in enabling the upper jaw to close on the lower jaw. Problems arise when the jaw joints stop working properly with jaw muscles.

Medical professionals regard TMD as a group of symptoms that occur together, as opposed to a single condition, and it’s thought to be caused by multiple factors.

We help many people in the Sunshine Coast community with managing their TMD. Contact us now to see how we may be able to help you.

TMD treatments


TMJ pain relief at Yandina Dental can alleviate the symptoms of TMJ disorders significantly.

A common method of treating TMD is with a customised oral appliance like a bite guard or dental splint to prevent upper and lower teeth grinding together.

Injections – also used for anti-wrinkle treatment – can ease TMJ discomfort as well by relaxing jaw muscles.

Other measures to help alleviate TMJ pain may include:

  • Tooth extraction
  • Orthodontic treatment – braces or Invisalign aligners – to straighten teeth
  • Attaching dental crowns or veneers onto teeth

We may also recommend:

  • Myofunctional therapy to resolve issues with facial muscles
  • Over-the-counter medication such as aspirin or another anti-inflammatory drug
  • Prescription medication such as muscle relaxants, nerve pain drugs, or injectable steroids
  • Relaxation techniques to help reduce jaw tension
  • Physiotherapy to strengthen jaw muscles and improve flexibility and range of motion.
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy – a form of talking therapy often used to ease anxiety

Freida Patient of Yandina Dental

Regan and his team have really set the bench mark in dentistry. They are very friendly and make your visit on the day as comfortable as possible. From your choice of music , too blankets if you get cold. Even a hot towel at the end of session. Regan explained every little detail and what measures needed to be carried out . He even gave me 3 paths to choose for my dental work and what sort of time frame the work would last . I would recommend Yandina Dental hands down , if your looking for a new dental experience , knowing your teeth are in good hands. Go and see Regan and his team.
