TMJ

SUFFERING FROM TMJ PAIN? WE CAN HELP!

Day after day, you wake up with a headache and aching jaw. Day after day, you struggle through the pain. You have seen doctor after doctor but instead of correcting anything, they prescribe pain meds or tell you to relax and reduce the stress. If this sounds familiar, you may be dealing with TMJ disorder, a common problem afflicting millions of Americans.

WHAT CAUSES TMJ DISORDER?

Often, TMJ disorder stems from a bad bite or a lack of harmony in the way your teeth come together. It can be a result of stress, clenching, an accident or other trauma or even poorly balanced dental work.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF TMJ DISORDER?

  • Headaches or migraines
  • Unexplained loose teeth
  • Worn, chipped or cracked teeth
  • Cracking, chipping or breaking dental restorations
  • Pain or soreness around the jaw joints
  • Neck, shoulder, facial or back pain
  • Clicking or grating sounds in the jaw joints
  • Numbness in your fingers and arms
  • Congestion or stuffiness of the ears
