Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
There is no TMJ speciality in dentistry. There are general dentists in Calgary who have received extra education in treating patients with TMJ compared to their training in dental school.Treatment of TMJ often involves the creation of a dental orthotic ,sometimes called a dental splint. The style of the orthotic varies greatly.Sometimes they are made for the upper teeth ,sometimes for the lower teeth. They may fit only on back teeth,only on front teeth and most often cover all the teeth on the arch it is made for.
