Temporomandibular Joint Treatment

Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders commonly referred to as TMJ are a group of conditions that cause pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and muscles that control the jaw.

TMJ isn’t usually serious, and the symptoms it can cause - including pain, jaw joint clicking or difficulty eating - are usually only occasional and temporary, occurring in cycles.

However, these symptoms can significantly lower quality of life and specialist treatment (including custom mouthguards or Xeomin) may be required if they are severe.

Symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

A variety of symptoms may be linked to TMJ disorders. Jaw pain is the most common symptom but others may include:

  • Radiating pain in the face, jaw or neck
  • Jaw muscle stiffness
  • Difficulty opening the jaw
  • Shift in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together
  • Painful clicking and popping of the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth
  • Headaches/migraines

Detecting TMJ early and having it treated is important and our team of qualified dentists are always available to assist you in enjoying a more comfortable and healthier jaw.

Get Dental Implants To Replace Missing Teeth

Dental implants are ideal for adults who have lost one or more teeth. As long lasting, natural appearing teeth, dental implants are a permanent solution to fill any gaps left by missing teeth while retaining jaw strength and allowing for easy cleaning. Dr. Korol emphasizes using biocompatible materials in her dental practice and puts a great deal of time and research into ensuring her patients receive the safest, most suitable dental products and care.

Treatment Options for TMJ

At our Calgary dental clinic, we have a number of TMJ treatment options available to improve the function of the jaw. During a comprehensive evaluation, our dentists can advise the best course of treatment to suit your specific needs.

Possible TMJ treatments include:


For patients who suffer from the painful symptoms of TMJ and bruxism (teeth grinding), custom mouthguards can provide long-lasting and effective relief.

When worn at night, a dental mouthguard prevents clenching and teeth grinding and also serves to keep the teeth & jawbone aligned.


Xeomin is fast becoming a popular treatment option for temporomandibular disorders. If you find that you are constantly clenching your jaw, grinding your teeth or bruxing, Xeomin can help relax your muscles and relieve any pain.

In addition, Xeomin can be used for cosmetic purposes and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a younger, healthier and more rejuvenated appearance.

**Dr. Korol is certified to provide our Calgary patients with Xeomin therapy for TMJ treatment, muscle pain relief and to cosmetically improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles**
