TMJ/TMD Treatment

What Is Tempromandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)?

TMD is the syndrome that happens when the muscles in the jaw and the TMJ are out of alignment or misaligned, causing problems when chewing. In plain English, the ligaments, muscles, bones and joints do not line up, causing pain.

    What can be done to Correct TMD?

    If the TMJ area has been damaged by arthritis or as a result of an accident, surgery may be needed to correct the TMJ and re-establish the proper occlusion. Far more likely, your doctor will recommend a therapy that may include bite splints and specific exercises to keep the teeth from touching and to allow the joint to remain lined up, allowing the jaw’s hinge area to relax. Such therapy increases your comfort by diminishing the TMJ pain. If a splint is prescribed for you, it is very important that you follow your doctor’s instructions regarding the amount of time and time of day you must wear it.

    If your condition is a Tempromandibular Joint Disorder, you need to wear your splint all the time unless directed otherwise. The splint stops tooth-to-tooth contact and keeps your jaw lined up properly, allowing the muscles and joint area to heal. As this healing takes place and the symptoms gradually disappear, your doctor will adjust your splint to keep your teeth properly aligned. During this period of your therapy, you will begin wearing the splint fewer hours of the day and after a period of time; you will no longer need to wear a splint.

    These conditions require you to wear your splint only at night, while sleeping.

    Clean the splint by brushing it. Keep it in water and mouthwash solution when it is not in your mouth.

    Our dentist clinic is located on Burnhamthorpe Road, a prime location in the heart of Mississauga. Just a couple blocks away from Square One Shopping Mall. Plenty of free parking slots available (free parking entrance). Visit our practice and enjoy our unique experience.


    Our patients do not have to contact their insurance companies to process their insurance claims. Our staff would do that on behalf of our patients. We accept direct billing assignment to minimise the hassle and enhance our patients’ experience.

    I have been going to Mississauga Smiles dental office for ages during the years of Dr. Bower. Then, I was a loyal patient, and I’m happy to say that the excellent care, patience, and commitment to great service have continued with the change.

    Lynn, my hygienist whom I see every four months, has this incredible way of making the dental visit surprisingly enjoyable. The reception team is not only welcoming but also super knowledgeable, and every staff member seems genuinely happy to see me.

    I had an outstanding experience at this dental practice! From the moment I walked in, the staff made me feel incredibly welcome and at ease.

    The dentists were not only knowledgeable but also took the time to thoroughly explain the treatment options available to me. The entire process, from the initial consultation to the final adjustments, was seamless and efficient. The office itself is modern, and comfortable, which added to the overall positive atmosphere. I am delighted with the results and can confidently recommend this practice to anyone seeking top-notch oral care and a fantastic smile transformation.

    Franchie Salvamante

    The best dentist and dental clinic I’ve ever been. The staff are friendly and accommodating from the time I walk into the moment I walk out of their clinic. I had my root canal and dental crown done and as expected it was exceptional and the procedure was done professionally.

    They also made sure that I am comfortable while they are doing the procedure. I received an exceptional service and Dr. Mohamad Khorshid is really great! If you are looking for a dentist and dental clinic to take care of you, I would highly recommend Mississauga Smiles Dentistry. I’m a regular client since 2018 and they really took good care of all my other dental needs.
