  • TMD / TMJ Treatment – Temporomandibular Disorders

    Temporomandibular disorders can manifest as chronic facial and neck pain as well as recurrent headaches.  The temporomandibular joints (or jaw-joints) connect your lower jaw to your skull.  These joints are on the receiving end of a lot of work over the course of day, be it via talking, chewing, yawning and swallowing.  Non-productive habits such as grinding or clenching as well as traumatic impacts can over-load these joints and result in pain in and around the area and possibly restricted jaw movement.

    Symptoms of TMD include:

    • Pain in and around the jaw
    • Pain, ringing (tinnitus), or stuffiness in the ears
    • Frequent headaches or neck aches
    • Locked jaw or limited opening of the mouth
    • Swelling on the sides of the face
    • Muscle spasms/tenderness  in the jaw area
    • A change in the alignment of top and bottom teeth
    • Clicking or popping sounds upon jaw movement

    If you suffer from any of the above symptoms, please let us know so that we may provide you with a thorough evaluation and make treatment recommendations that are right for you.
