TMJ Pain Disorders

TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have symptoms like pain or a “clicking” sound, you’ll be glad to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Since some types of TMJ problems can lead to more serious conditions, early detection and treatment are important. No one treatment can resolve TMJ disorders completely and treatments take time to be effective.  We can help you have a healthier and more comfortable jaw by using the latest techniques from injection of Botox to surgery.

Trouble with Your Jaw?

TMJ disorders develop for many reasons. You might clench or grind your teeth, tightening your jaw muscles and stressing your joint. Or, you may have a damaged jaw joint due to injury or disease. Whatever the cause, the results may include a misaligned bite, pain, clicking or grating noises when you open your mouth, or trouble opening your mouth wide.

Treatment

Our doctors utilize various treatment options to improve the harmony and function of your jaw. Once an evaluation confirms a diagnosis of TMJ disorder we will determine the proper course of treatment. Treatment always works best with the dual approach of self-administered care as well as professional care.
