What is TMJ/TMD and Why Am I in Constant Pain?

TMD or temporomandibular joint disorder can negatively affect everything from your jaw joints or muscles and the nerves in your face. When this happens, some of the most common side effects or symptoms such as ear pain, headaches, jaw tenderness, pain when talking, chewing, or biting can take over and ruin your life.

While every person and every case is different, there are some common causes of TMD or TMJ discomfort that can include issues with arthritis, an unbalanced bite, jaw misalignment, trauma or injury, and even stress.

It’s Time to Finally Feel Better

Our doctors rely on something called centric relation when diagnosing and treating TMD issues to help you break the cycle of pain and consistently relying on medications to dull your discomfort. We’ll conduct a thorough occlusal evaluation which is going to show us any issue or instances where your bite isn’t quite right.

If your doctor does find problems with your TMJ, we can help! We offer high-tech treatment options, including a custom occlusal mouthguard to set your bite straight and effective physical therapy.
