Save Your Teeth And Your Good Night’s Sleep!

For many patients, dental care is a reaction to a problem: fillings for cavities, crowns for damaged teeth, or bridges when extractions are necessary. For many patients, this can be due to a fear of regular appointments, or perhaps the belief that home care is enough to keep their teeth clean. At Winnipeg Square Dental, we take a different approach to oral health – a preventive one!

Being proactive about your oral health is essential to maintaining a healthy mouth. Not only does preventive dental care minimize the potential for painful conditions, but it can also save you money! By catching problems early and taking steps to keep your teeth and gums healthy, we can set you up for a smile that lasts a lifetime!

Your temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull. When that joint is out of alignment or the surrounding muscles aren’t functioning correctly, the result is intense pain and discomfort.

The causes and symptoms of TMD are various, but there are several common reasons why your TMJ can become painful. Many patients have osteoarthritis in the joint, resulting in the loss of cartilage that usually cushions the jaw. TMD can also be caused by trauma to your jaw or an incorrect bite.


Symptoms of TMD include:

  • Lockjaw

  • Headaches

  • Teeth grinding (bruxism)

  • Pain in the neck, shoulders, jaw, and face

  • Clicking or popping when you chew or open your mouth

  • A bite that doesn’t feel right

If you are experiencing these symptoms, we’d love to help you feel better and sleep more soundly!

Getting Treated For Your TMD

TMD treatments can range in complication from surgeries to simple oral appliances. At Winnipeg Square Dental, we offer night guards to help treat the symptoms of TMD, which are successful in a large number of cases!

Night guards are small oral appliances that you wear when sleeping. They help keep your jaw in a neutral position that will relax your muscles and prevent teeth grinding and clenching that can make TMD pain worse. If you want, you can continue to wear your night guard during the day, a good option for patients experiencing a high amount of pain.

If you come to Winnipeg Square Dental for TMD treatment, we’ll start with a full oral exam. We want to be sure that we rule out any other causes of your pain, such as an abscess, infection, or impacted wisdom tooth. Once we know for sure that there aren’t any other physical symptoms causing your pain, we’ll help set you up with a night guard.

Using an impression of your mouth, our dental lab will build a night guard that is specially designed for your teeth. We’ll have it back within a few weeks, and then you’ll be on your way to better sleep!

If for any reason your night guard doesn’t help resolve your symptoms, we’ll refer you to someone in our network of specialists that can further investigate your TMD.

Don’t wait for your nights to get more restful – we can help you feel better with just one simple oral appliance for TMJ treatment!

Patient Reviews:

I have been seeing Dr.Jeal and his team @ Winnipeg Square Dental for approx 2 years. I am a real person with a real job and real life around me. The team at WSD really did change my life. Not only do they operate with honesty and integrity, they also make you feel like you are definately at the right place. They treat me like they remember my name, because they actually do. Every quote I have recieved (3 so far) has turned into a much smaller bill as they will only do what's nescassary. The smile I got from these folks is much more than I could ever have hoped. I would recommend Winnipeg Square Dental to everyone I know, they will not dissapoint. Truly great people, Thank you WSD :)

I first reached out to Winnipeg Square Dental years ago about the Invisalign treatment. I was hesitant and unsure due to the commitment and finances it required. Charlene was someone I was in regular contact in. There was never any pressure - in fact, I never felt judged, I felt taken care of and understood with my apprehensions. I am actually now finished my Invisalign journey, and the results are this beautiful smile I have always dreamed about having. The results are priceless. I cannot even begin how good it feels to smile! I had always been insecure to smile with my teeth - making it a habit to cover my mouth whenever I smiled. I deeply appreciate and feel so much gratitude to the team at Winnipeg Square Dental Centre, to Alyssa and Dr. Jeal. Especially to my favourite human being, Charlene. Thanks for being the awesome individuals you all are.

I Love Winnipeg Square Dental. All Staff are so accommodating, friendly, genuinely care about all of there patients. I was extremely self conscious about my smile and wasn't sure what direction to go in. Invisalign was recommended and the process to get me started was amazing. I'm half way through my Invisalign treatment and i'm having an amazing experience thanks to Dr Jeal and his assistant. Can't wait for the final product. I would highly recommend this dental office as they treat you like their own! my experience thus far as been amazing. Thank you to all the staff at Winnipeg Dental square centre.
