Getting to the bottom of painful jaw conditions

Approximately one in ten people in the United Kingdom experience problems related to the jaw joint at some point in their lives. The most common symptom is pain, either in the jaw itself or in and around the cheek, ear, neck and shoulder areas. Other indications include restricted movement of the jaw, a grating/ popping sound when talking or eating, and migraine headaches.

We are able to assess and diagnose your condition. Your dentist will carefully examine your jaw, mouth, head and neck and ask you about your symptoms and medical history. This information will allow us to determine the cause of the issue and to advise on the appropriate treatment. In some cases surgery may be required, in which case we will refer you to a specialist.
