If you suffer from aching in the face, ear and head aches, migraines and tinnitus its a possibility you are suffering from TMJ, although it is something that can only be treated to an extent Ninety 2 Dental can help you to live with TMJ

Firstly to give you more information on what TMJ means and stands for- The temporomandibular joint is the point at where the lower jaw connects with your skull, It is very small and delicate and if damaged servelerly  it may take some serious corrective surgery to put things right.

The question is how do we damage this joint? However it surprisingly does alot of work between eating and talking, but the jaw is on the go all of the time and yet, thanks to the muscles and tissue that surround it, it copes very well with the average day.

The problem comes with the extra stresses put on our jaw for example Teeth grinding and injuries from sport, can ruin these joints and from that the problem is caused, such as your jaws may click and pop whenever you use them and biting can cause pain problems

Radio-graphs are another important factor in this as they ensure the your dentist can identify problems quickly and solve them for you as soon as possible

Radio graphs show up a multiple of sins which could lead to any of the following such as fillings, root canals, deep cleaning and scaling, the removal of tartar followed by polishing, the removal of problem milk and wisdom teeth, and the overseeing of orthodontic problems.
