TMJ/tMD

Temperomandibular Disease is a disorder that affects the temporomandibular joint or jaw joint. It can cause recurring debilitating pain in the jaw if left untreated or misdiagnosed. 

COMMON SYMPTOMS OF TMD INCLUDE:

  • Clicking/popping in the jaw joints when opening or closing the mouth
  • Persistent headaches and facial pain
  • Limited ability to open the mouth
  • Pain or tenderness in the neck or ear when talking, chewing or opening the mouth wide
Since these symptoms may be a result of other conditions, a thorough examination is needed to receive an accurate diagnosis and to design an efficient treatment plan.
