More About TMJ


TMJ refers to the temporomandibular joint (the jaw joint) that connects your lower jawbone to your skull. We are constantly using these joints during the day. Without them, we would not be able to speak or eat so effortlessly.

TMD (temporomandibular disorder) is the common pain and inflammation that affects these joints and can result in many excruciating physical and psychological issues.  Symptoms include:

Jaw Pain

Restricted Jaw Movement

Clicking Sound with Movement

Difficulty Opening the Jaw (Chewing and Talking)

Trouble Sleeping

Back and Neck Pain

Ear Aches

Headaches

Migraines

Dealing with a health problem that causes chronic pain can often extend symptoms well beyond the physical, resulting in behavioral and mental problems such as depression and anxiety. Call our office today to learn more.

If you have self diagnosed your symptoms and are not ready to see a specialist, it’s important for you to try and reduce the pain with some of these at home tips:

  • Consciously relax your face.
  • Throw out that pack of gum.
  • Make an effort to chew food evenly on each side of your mouth.
  • Sit up straight and try not to sit with your chin rested on your hand.
  • Apply ice and moist heat to the area to minimize pain and inflammation.
