About TMJ Disorder
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder can cause a wide variety of symptoms, from pain in the jaw joint, to headaches, dizziness, difficulty chewing or biting, ear pain, ringing in the ear, and even hearing loss.
TMJ disorder can be caused by trauma to the area, wear and tear over time, or poor habits, such as teeth grinding or clenching.
With a simple examination, we can tell you if the symptoms you are experiencing are due to TMJ disorder.
Once our knowledgeable team has diagnosed TMJ, there are a variety of treatment options available.
Treatment may include coaching you to change any habits that may be worsening your TMJ, preparing a custom-made mouth guard, physical therapy and/or medication.
