Do you experience pain in your jaw on opening or closing? Do you feel or hear a persistent clicking or popping noise every time you open? Have you ever gotten your jaw stuck shut or open? Do you have chronic headaches? If so, you may have Temporomandibular Joint Disorder or TMJD, often referred to casually as TMJ.
There can be multiple causes and presentation of TMJD, but typically patients share the sensation of daily discomfort or pain related to opening, closing, or chewing. Our skilled and experienced dentists can evaluate your problem and recommend strategies and appliances that can help to alleviate your pain and, over time, resolve the underlying issue.
If you experience pain that you believe may be related to your jaw joint, we encourage you to call our office to set up an evaluation.
