Services and treatments at The Lister Hospital

Temporomandibular joint clinic

Clinical Department

Temporomandibular joint clinic


Between 25% and 40% of people in the general population can expect to develop either pain or loss of function due to inflammation, derangement or degeneration of the TMJ joint itself. TMJ disorders are often picked up by dentists and are referred to a variety of medical and dental specialties, which offer a patchy and inconsistent approach.

We offer convenient appointments, combined with clinical excellence. Patients can make their own appointment at The TMJ Clinic, or be referred by their GP or dentist. The expertise and experience available in our team means a fast, accurate diagnosis with bespoke treatment for each patient.

The TMJ Clinic at The Lister Hospital is run by an established multidisciplinary team. 
Founder and clinical lead is Mr Shaun Matthews, Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, who has an international reputation in the management of TMJ disorders. He works closely with Dr Tim Poate, Consultant in Oral Medicine with a special interest in facial pain, and Helen Cowgill, a Clinical Specialist TMJ physiotherapist. 

For more information, please refer to our TMJ Clinic Brochure.
