How We Manage Your Treatment
TMJ dysfunction occurs when the jaw joint becomes damaged or displaced through stress, trauma, and excessive teeth grinding. Symptoms of TMJ disorders include headaches, pain in the jaw, and an inability to completely open your mouth. You may also experience clicking and popping and inflammation of the jaw joint. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located at the point where your jawbone and skull meet and is used whenever you eat, drink, speak, swallow, and even yawn.
Additional problems caused by TMJ dysfunction may include: ringing in the ears, neck and facial pain, limited head movement, wearing down of teeth, and dizziness.
