It’s Time to Alleviate Your TMJ Pain
At Bain Dental Group we believe in a comprehensive approach to dentistry.
What does that mean?
It means we’re looking at all your symptoms to diagnose and treat potential dental issues. This is especially true with issues like Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ).
If you’re experiencing daily headaches you can’t seem to shake or your jaw clicks when chewing dinner, you could be experiencing symptoms of TMJ.
What is Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ)?
Your temporomandibular joint is an important joint that connects your jaw to your skull. When you experience TMJ, the joint isn’t functioning as it is meant to. This can cause persistent pain in the face, jaw, and surrounding areas of your body making everyday activities very uncomfortable.
Symptoms of TMJ include:
- Persistent headaches
- Pain or tenderness in the face or jaw
- Limited jaw movement and/or clicking
- Facial muscle aches
- Difficulty chewing
- Ringing in the ears
If you’re experiencing one or more of the above symptoms, it may be time to make an appointment. We can help rid you of the pain with a diagnosis and a customized treatment plan.
