TMJ Treatment

The muscles that help you chew, speak and swallow are called the temporomandibular joints (TMJ). When a person experiences a problem using these muscles to perform their complex functions it is very likely that they are experiences temporomandibular disorder (TMD). There are a variety of possible causes of TMD such as, but not limited to:

  • Stress which may cause clenching or grinding
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Jaw trauma such as a car accident

We can perform a dental examination if you are experiencing any pain associated with chewing, speaking and swallowing. We check your muscles and joints for pain, popping, and immobility. Through this process, we can help you effectively diagnose your pain and provide an effective TMJ treatment in our office that fits your needs.
