Jaw Problems

Relieve Your Jaw Problems from TMJ Syndrome

If you're suffering from TMJ syndrome (temporomandibular joint) or TMD (disorder), Caring Dentistry can help you to determine the best course of treatment.

TMJ Syndrome presents itself as a popping sound and sensation near the jaw joint. Many times all that's needed is a simple adjustment to your bite (the way your teeth come together), or a small mouthpiece that corrects the way your jaw joint closes.

Symptoms of TMJ Syndrome

  • Clicking or grating sounds in the jaw joints
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Dizziness
  • Earaches, stuffiness or ringing in the ears
  • Facial pain
  • Headaches
  • Limited movement or locking of the jaw
  • Neck, shoulder, or back pain
  • Numbness in fingers and arms
  • Pain behind the eyes
  • Pain or soreness in and around the jaw joints
  • Unexplained loosening of teeth

Who is affected by TMJ Syndrome?

TMJ Syndrome affects people of all ages, although patients under 40 are more susceptible and it occurs more frequently in women. If you are experiencing symptoms of TMJ Syndrome, Caring Dentistry can help. Call our office to schedule an appointment.
