Treatment of TMJ disorder

Are you suffering from headaches, clicking in your jaw joints, or grinding your teeth while you sleep? To eliminate these problems, you may need treatment to get your jaw aligned, commonly known as TMJ or TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder). TMJ / TMD is a condition that affects the area where the jawbone attaches to the skull. With TMJ, common jaw motions like chewing and speaking can be a painful experience. In severe cases, the disorder can also cause headaches, ear aches, and discomfort in other areas of your body such as neck and shoulders. Cartilage recession, the presence of arthritis, excessive grinding or clenching, jaw misalignment, and a variety of other issues can be the root cause of TMJ disorder. Common symptoms of TMJ include:

  • Painful jaw movement
  • Popping or clicking in the jaw joints
  • Trouble opening and closing the mouth
  • Chronic headaches or earaches
  • Face, neck, and shoulder pain
  • Toothaches
  • Dizziness
  • Numbness in the arms and / or fingers
