TMJ Treatment

Woman with TMJ pain

Do you suffer with TMJ pain?

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD, or “TMJ” for short) is a condition that involves the function of your  jaw joint. We use this joint to do everything – from eating, talking, yawning and so much more. Try not opening your mouth for an entire day and see how much we need our TMJs!
Symptoms of TMJ can include:

  • Popping, clicking or locking of the jaw
  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain in the head
  • Tooth wear
  • Ineffective chewing
  • Ringing in the ears

If an abnormality is present in the jaw or the bite of your teeth, it can cause symptoms of TMJ disorder to develop. We will assess the function of your TMJ during your exam to determine whether it is functioning properly. Several types of TMJ disorders can be addressed through non-surgical methods, such as bite splint therapy or orthodontics. If you have any of the symptoms of TMJ and you’re not sure where to turn, start with a dental examination. Please don’t suffer needlessly in silence. Don’t wait until the jaw locks up (again)! Give is a call so we can help you through the pain.
