What Are TMJ and TMD?

Your chewing muscle and jaw must work together so you can talk and eat properly, making the need for TMJ evaluations crucial. TMJ and TMD (temporomandibular disorder) are terms often used to explain the same issues, such as jaw, neck, head, and muscle pain.

Our dentists can help restore your jaw to the correct alignment or recommend other treatments to alleviate pain.

What Causes TMJ Pain?

TMJ pain can derive from many causes, including high levels of stress and pain sensitivity. Some common reasons for TMJ pain include:

  • Poor posture
  • Neglected teeth or improper chewing
  • Frequently chewing gum
  • Trismus
  • Recent jaw surgery
  • Teeth grinding or clenching
  • Anxiety
  • TMJ arthritis

Dentists might recommend different treatments for TMJ pain, such as orthodontic appliances, therapy, surgery, or bite correction. You can also participate in at-home treatments to experience less pain, such as jaw exercises or eating soft foods.

New doctor is great. I was really confused by what was going on with the new name and staff that's why I left the negative review at first. I have a brain injury so I get confused alot. Staff is friendly. Atmosphere is nice.

I have been here multiple times having crowns put in,filling in areas with enamel corrosion ,cleaning and standard root canals, on my first visit I was depressed about my teeth humble state of affairs and didn't think much would be done with my insurance however at the end of the session I had my faith restored, total skill and professionalism, months later at the time of writing this , my teeth are no longer something iworry about! Also a very friendly and approachable staff not once did I feel any sharp pain or intolerable discomfort. Best dam dentist office I've ever been to.
