Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD)
The jaw joint, technically called the temporomandibular joint, can suffer from disorders just as any of the joints in the body can. Disorders in the jaw can cause headaches or pain in the joint, limited or deviated opening, sore jaw muscles, trigger points, changes to your occlusion (bite), and popping or clicking sounds. Treatments are varied and can be aimed at alleviating the symptoms or treating the cause itself. Our doctors can evaluate your jaw joints to determine what might be causing your symptoms, and speak to you about a possible treatment.
