What is TMJ/TMD?
Studies show that TMJ/TMD affects about 10% of the population, and is the most common cause of facial pain. TMJ stands for “temporomandibular joint”. This is the joint that attaches your jawbone to your skull, and is responsible for the movement of your mouth during many daily activities. You use this joint every time you speak, eat, smile, chew, and drink, which means that TMD can greatly disrupt a patient’s life. Signs of TMJ/TMD include frequent headaches, stiff jaw muscles and discomfort, and difficulty sleeping. Notice these symptoms? Give us a call to schedule a consultation.
