TMJ disorders are a group of complex problems of the jaw joint. Damage to jaw joint and its muscles can cause a variety of symptoms in the neck or head area. Some common symptoms include headaches, cold-sensitive teeth, pain in and around the ear, tenderness of the jaw and clicking and popping noises when opening the mouth.
Often caused by stress, trauma or other injury, TMJ therapy can include adjustments to the way your teeth fit together or splints of various designs thereby decreasing the stress to muscles, teeth, bone around the teeth and joints. TMJ therapy is most successful when treated in the early stages. Our office is thorough in its approach to determining the cause and solution for your discomfort.
