TMJ Disorders

TMJ disorders are a cluster of issues related to the complexity of your jaw joint. If you are experiencing symptoms like pain or a “clicking” sound, come to us for a proper diagnosis and professional treatments of your disorder.

Symptoms of TMJ occur when the joints of your jaw and your chewing muscles do not work together properly. TMJ can lead to more serious conditions if it is not detected and treated early enough.

Identifying TMJ Disorders

Signs and symptoms of TMJ disorders are frequently intensified by stress and can include:

  • Constant grinding or clenching of your teeth
  • Still muscles around your jaw
  • Headaches or neck aches
  • Clicking, popping, grafting, or locking of the jaw
  • Teeth no longer touch when biting
  • Sensitive, loose, or broken teeth
  • Pain when opening your mouth

  • Use a night-guard
  • Ice and/or heat applications
  • Exercising your jaw
  • Steroid Injections
  • Anti-inflammatory
