TMJ Therapy

Do you recognize the seven warning signs
of TMD?

  • Pain in the face or neck area
  • Pain in or around the ear
  • Stiffness in the jaw
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Headaches
  • Trouble opening and closing the mouth
  • Teeth that don't come together properly

Symptoms of TMJ dysfunction are so diverse that someone suffering from them may go undiagnosed for years. TMJ disorders can be caused by various kinds of trauma, motor vehicle accidents, a blow to the head, sports injuries, falls, missing teeth, crooked teeth or an improper bite, old or ill fitting dentures, poor posture, cradling a phone on the shoulder and playing certain musical instruments.

"TMJ Disorders" is a common term for Craniomandibular Dysfunction, a collection of symptoms that result when the chewing muscles and jaw joints do not work together correctly.
