TMJ in Farmington Hills, MI
Jaw pain isn’t something you just have to live with.
Get lasting relief with non-invasive TMJ treatment!
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), roughly 10 million Americans suffer from TMJ disorder. “TMJ” stands for “Temporomandibular Joint;” your TMJs connect your lower jaw to your skull. When these joints are irritated, inflamed, or damaged, the patient is experiencing TMJ dysfunction.
If you’re dealing with TMJ disorder, you may experience a number of unpleasant symptoms, including:
- Chronic jaw pain
- Neck pain
- Clicking or popping sound when moving the jaw
- A “locking” sensation when you open your jaw
- Limited jaw mobility
TMJ disorder is a complex health issue with a number of different potential causes. Stress, hormonal fluctuations in women, a misaligned bite (malocclusion), and bruxism (teeth grinding) can all contribute to TMJ problems.
According to the TMJ Association (TMJA), there are as many as 50 types of potential treatments for TMJ disorder. That is why it is so crucial that you get personalized treatment; in our office, there are no one-size-fit-all treatments for TMJ disorder.
