TMJ Jaw Joint Treatment
Write Review

Temporomandibular Disorders (TMJD), commonly called TMJ, are a collection of conditions characterized by pain in the jaw and surrounding tissues and limitations in jaw movements. Injury and conditions that routinely affect other joints in the body, such as arthritis, also affect the temporomandibular joint. One or both joints may be affected which can affect a person's ability to speak, eat, chew, swallow, make facial expressions, and even breathe.

 

Symptoms of TMJ include pain in the neck and shoulders, migraine and/or chronic headache, jaw stiffness, painful clicking or popping of the jaw, ear pain, decreased hearing, dizziness and vision problems. Jaw noises without pain do not mean you have a TMJ problem.

 

Diagnosis of TMJ may be made by our experienced dentists. Common treatments are Night Guards, Bite Guards and Bite Adjustments. We can guide you toward the best treatment.
