The temporomandibular joint connects the lower jaw to the skull. Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders, commonly called "TMJ," are a group of conditions that cause pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement. Symptoms of TMJ can include; radiating pain in the face, jaw, or neck, jaw muscle stiffness, limited movement or locking of the jaw, painful clicking, popping in the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth, or a change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together. We provide several treatment options for those suffering from TMJ disorders, including night guards or bite splints. If you are experiencing any of the of these symptoms, please call us for a TMJ consultation.
