Does your jaw ache on a consistent basis, or do you have facial pain? You may be suffering from TMJ or TMD. Temporomandibular joint disorders involve the jaw joint and the surrounding muscles, causing pain and dysfunction in the jaw area. At the Center for Restorative, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry, we can help you treat TMJ and get relief with effective general dentistry options for remedying this condition.
TMD can have many different symptoms. Jaw and facial pain are just two of the common complaints from those that suffer from jaw joint disorders. Headaches, earaches, neck pain and locking jaw are also common. Many people experience a popping or clicking sound when they chew or open their jaw. TMD can be caused by many different issues, including misalignment of the bite, teeth grinding or clenching and other factors. Treatment can depend on the exact cause of your disorder and your symptoms.
