If you have persistent jaw pain, tension heads, or even worn teeth, you may be suffering from TMJ, also known as TMD, which is a structural jaw disorder. We are experienced in treating patients with TMJ/TMD, and urge you to make an appointment if you are suffering from symptoms related to this disorder.
TMJ, which stands for temporomandibular joint dysfunction, is a fairly common problem since it affects nearly 30 percent of adults between the ages of 20 and 40 years old. More commonly seen in women, the headaches you may experience in relation to TMJ could also be in relation to a number of different things. Tension headaches are one of the primary symptoms of TMJ, and these headaches can be debilitating and affect everything from work, to school, and even your sleep.
Our dentists will administer a series of tests to see if your tension headaches, jaw clenching, teeth grinding, or jaw pain are the result of TMJ. We will then develop a personalized treatment plan for you to relieve your pain and discomfort.
