TMD is often the cause of ongoing headaches and facial pain issues.

Do you have TMd?

What Is TMD?

Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders (TMD or TMJ) cause pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and the muscles controlling jaw movement. More commonly found in women aged 18-44, some estimate that over 10 million Americans struggle with TMD related issues.

Common Causes

Some common causes of temporomandibular joint syndrome include stress, arthritis, injury, jaw or tooth misalignment, Bruxism (grinding teeth), and gum chewing.

Treatment Solutions

Wearing a customized oral appliance during sleep can often solve less complex TMD issues. The right appliance will help maintain proper jaw alignment, while also preventing teeth clenching and grinding. In more severe cases of TMD, advanced dental surgery may be needed.  If your teeth have been damaged as a result of TMD, our team specializes in complex restorative dental care.
