Jaw-joint Pain


Pain in your jaw joint and numerous facial muscles can be debilitating, affecting your quality of life.

Symptoms can include:

  • Tender facial muscles
  • Frequent headaches
  • Limited mouth opening
  • Clicking/crackling near jaw-joint
  • Pain in and around the ear
  • Increasing pain & locking episodes

Potential causes for this pain include:

  • Wear and tear on the joint
  • Arthritis of the jaw-joint
  • Stress
  • Grinding or clenching of your teeth (bruxism)
  • Misalignment of your upper and lower jaws

Treating Jaw-joint Pain


Various dental treatment that can help in alleviating the jaw-joint pain include occlusal splints and muscle relaxants.

Occlusal Splints


  • Also known as night guards, these removable custom-fitted dental appliances are worn whilst you sleep to protect your teeth and existing restorations from involuntary and destructive jaw movements.
  • Occlusal splints provide protection from grinding and clenching by covering the biting surfaces of the upper or lower teeth resulting in their separation. Fabricated by CAD/CAM technology from a durable material typically produces a much stronger, less bulky and precise fitting appliance than the convention methods use.
