I'm in pain - but its not toothache

Is it me or is there something in the water? 


This last couple of months we have found that there's been a run of people coming in to York Place with a problem called TMD - you might recognise some of the symptoms below:


  • Pain or tenderness of your jaw joints
  • Pain in and around your ear
  • Difficulty eating
  • Aching facial pain
  • Locking of the jaw joints, making it difficult to open or close your mouth
  • Headaches 
  • Uncomfortable bite
  • An uneven bite, because one or more teeth are making premature contact
And we are providing the appropriate treatment for it.

We're also finding that very few people have heard of it and many have been passed from pillar to post in the healthcare system and made no progress - so here's a link to a good summary from The Mayo Clinic. 

Hope it helps.
