Grey Container – do not delete or move.
Millions of Americans suffer from chronic facial and neck pain as well as recurring headaches. In some cases, this pain is due to TMD. Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect your lower jawbone to your skull. Pain in and around these joints can be unpleasant and may even restrict movement.
Pain in the jaw area
Pain, ringing, or stuffiness in the ears
Frequent headaches or neck aches
Clicking or popping sound when the jaw moves
Swelling on the sides of the face
Muscle spasms in the jaw area
A change in the alignment of top and bottom teeth
Locked jaw or limited opening of the mouth
Should you notice any of these symptoms, let your doctor know. Your dentist can help indicate the presence of TMD and create an effective treatment just for you.
Grey Container – do not delete or move.
It is estimated that more than 80 million people in North America snore while sleeping, which not only affects the quality of sleep of the person snoring, but also the quality of sleep of their loved ones and other family members. Luckily, there is a way to treat chronic snoring.
If you snore at night, then a mandibular advancement device (MAD) may represent a solution and a better night’s sleep! The MAD is a specially designed dental device that gently helps keep the lower jaw, or mandible, in a forward position, increasing the space between the airway passage and helping you breathe better so you can get a full, quiet night’s sleep. Some devices also stop the tongue from falling back over your windpipe. Your dentist will fit these special appliances to meet your individual condition.
Are you drowsy during the day with no explanation? Do you snore loudly or wake up breathless in the middle of the night?
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, you’re not alone – millions of Canadians are affected by sleep apnea – a condition where your breathing stops periodically, as many as 20-30 times per hour. Each time you stop breathing in your sleep, the resulting lack of oxygen alerts your brain, which temporarily wakes you up to restart proper breathing.
Since the time spent awake is so brief, most people don’t remember, and feel like they are getting a good night’s sleep when, in fact, they are not. The constant wake-sleep, wake-sleep cycle prevents those with sleep apnea from achieving deep sleep, resulting in a constant drowsy feeling during the day.
Treatments for sleep apnea depend on the severity of each individual case, and the type of apnea. Basic treatment can be behavioral — beyond that, your dentist can help with fitting oral devices that position the mouth in such a way that prevents throat blockage. In more severe cases, surgery may be the best option.

You might not be familiar with the term “bruxism”, but you have probably heard of or experienced teeth grinding or jaw clenching. These two oral health issues affect many Canadians every year, causing pain to some people from the moment they wake up to the time they go to sleep at night. One of the symptoms of bruxism can be excessive headaches.
Therapeutic treatment of severe nocturnal bruxism and migraine headaches are uniquely treated at Georgian Dental® with injectable therapy. Injectables prevent the release of acetylcholine, a chemical used to transmit signals for a muscle to contract. Injectables act by helping turn off any muscle spasm in the head that can lead to migraine and headaches.
Therapeutic injectables can be effective for headaches but won’t cure whatever is causing your bruxism. What it will do is help prevent your headaches as your dentist works on a permanent solution to your teeth grinding or jaw clenching. For instance, if you need a dental night guard, then injectables may buy you some pain-free time while it is being molded.
If you are a candidate for therapeutic injectables therapy—we’ll arrange for an assessment and help determine a treatment that can make a difference.
Our office is not only dedicated to your smile; we’re also dedicated to your overall wellness. We take a holistic approach to your dental care, which includes an in-depth oral cancer screening as a part of your regular exam. Like any kind of cancer, oral cancer can be life threatening if not diagnosed and treated early. The most common symptoms of oral cancer include:
Red or white spots or sores anywhere in the oral cavity
A sore that bleeds easily or does not heal
A lump, thickening, or rough spot
Pain, tenderness, or numbness anywhere in the mouth or on the lips
Difficulty chewing, swallowing, speaking, or moving the jaw or tongue
Our team of professionals and state-of-the-art dental clinic is set up with the VELscope screening system to detect and identify the early signs and symptoms of oral cancer and precancerous conditions.
The VELscope system uses a specialized light source and viewing scope that make it easier for your dentist to look at tissues in your mouth. Normal tissue glows a bright green color, abnormal tissue shows up much darker. If an abnormal screening occurs, it doesn’t necessarily mean cancer, but your dentist may schedule a second scan to see if the dark spots disappear. Alternatively, the dentist may choose to perform a gentle, non-invasive brush biopsy to make sure it’s not cancer.
One of the best features of Georgian Dental® are our no-obligation consultations. During this consultation, we will answer any questions you might have about the VELscope procedure.
