Temporomandibular Joint Disorders
The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is the small hinge that connect the temporal bone of the skull to the lower jaw bone. This particular joint is mainly responsible for the mobility of the jaw. There are many reasons for disorders related to the TMJ which include disc displacement and arthritis. There are two of these joints on either side of the jaw and they are made up of muscles, bones and nerves. This means that any wear and tear to the TMJ can cause migraines, earaches, and also pain in the neck and shoulders.
Symptoms of TMJ Disorders
The major symptoms of this type of disorder include extreme pain in the mouth, ear and facial region. The patient can also begin to grind their teeth and clench them without realizing it.
The major causes of TMJ Disorders in Dubai can be due to traumatic incidents like an accident due to sports, bruxism, and malocclusion which is the irregularity in the shape of the teeth. Another major reason for people to get temporomandibular disorders is due to increased stress.
There are some cases where the pain associated with a TMJ disorder will reduce over time, but in most cases, medication is required. Mouth guards and oral splints are another non-surgical way of treating TMJ disorders. If the pain persists even after resorting to these methods, our surgeon will advise you to have a surgical procedure done.

Made the decision today to move all our families dental care to this clinic under the trusting care of Dr. Elina. A noteworthy 5* service.
Amazing services. It was our first time for my husband and I, so a bit scared about what will happen (like every time we go to the dentist) and at end everything went perfectly. Our dentist Irynha was amazing, she was explaining to us all the situation and then she gave us a time to think about it for doing it or not. she was a careful listener and really helpful.
I am a loyal customer of the Dome MedDental Clinic for a few years and I must admit the high level of their staff, doctors and customer service. My special gratitude is for Dr. Iryna Zinkovych who has an excellent method as a dentist with a very thorough approach. She is extremely familiar with all of the latest trends in dental technology and she uses much of it in her practice. Dr. Iryna is a painless dentist. I would strongly recommend her and I am certain that there are many other patients who feel the same way.
