If you struggle with sore or stiff jaws, headaches, and neck, shoulder or ear pain, you may have a temporomandibular or TMJ disorder. Along with these symptoms, you may experience clicking or popping sounds or sensations when you eat, speak or even yawn. A TMJ disorder is the result of repeated stress on the cartilage in the joints that connect your lower jaw to your skull. This could be brought on by injury, bruxism or arthritis. Our dentist and team offer TMJ treatments to help relieve your discomfort, restore your normal oral functions, and help you eat and speak with ease. Those treatments may include lifestyle changes, exercises, relaxation techniques or a custom mouth guard. We may also try using restorative dentistry to address the issue. In some cases, surgery may be required to correct the problem, but we will do what we can to make that a treatment of last resort.
