Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Treatment
The temporomandibular joint is the joint where the jawbone fits in with the skull, opening and closing as we need it to. As the jaw grows, unfortunately, issues can occur within this small joint, causing chronic pain and other problems that can interfere with a person’s overall quality of life.
TMJ disorders refer to a group of conditions that affect the joint and surrounding muscles. Some TMJ disorders resolve with time on their own, but in more severe cases, patients must make lifestyle changes or receive other treatments to solve TMJ issues.
