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
Earaches, stuffiness or ringing in the ears
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
