TMJ causes pain and discomfort in the jaw joint, called the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), and the muscles that move your jaw. While pain in the jaw or the muscles surrounding the jaw can be common, it does not always signal a problem. Jaw pain is usually temporary and goes away without treatment.

Symptoms of TMJ include headaches along with pain in the jaw, face, and ear. People may have trouble chewing and an uncomfortable bite. Some people have pain in their neck and experience dizziness.

Most people try to treat the symptoms at home with pain relievers and ice packs. However, you may need additional help from our dentist. Mouthguards are often used to help. Surgery or implants might be necessary.

If you are suffering from TMJ , don’t hesitate to contact us today. We will schedule an appointment so we can discuss your options. We will do everything we can to help you have a beautiful smile without pain!
