Advanced Solutions for TMJ
The temporomandibular joint connects the lower jaw, called the mandible, to the temporal bone at the side of the head. Some people feel discomfort or pain in the muscles that control jaw function. We can help alleviate symptoms of clicking, pain, pressure in sinuses, difficulty opening mouth, and migraine headaches.
Do you suffer from chronic pain in your jaw and face, experience "popping" sounds when you chew and talk or have symptoms such as headaches or lockjaw? If so, the problem may be TMJ. This condition affects more than 10 million people in the U.S. alone. And it’s more than just painful — over time it can cause serious damage to your jaws and teeth.
TMJ Dysfunction is a popular term to describe a disorder of the jaw joints or the muscles that control the joints. Symptoms masquerade as a multitude of other problems such as sinus headaches, migraines, neck and shoulder stiffness and earaches.
We can pinpoint the source of your pain and provide relief using the very latest in gentle, nonsurgical treatments.
