Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD)

Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD)

The temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects your jaw to your skull. When this joint is injured or damaged, it can lead to a localized pain disorder called temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome or temporomandibular disorder (TMD).

Causes of TMJ disorders include injury to the teeth or jaw, misalignment of the teeth or jaw, teeth grinding or clenching, poor posture, stress, arthritis, and gum chewing.

  • Signs and symptoms of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome include
    • Jawpain
    • Jaw clicking and popping
    • Ear pain/earache
    • Popping sounds in ears
    • Headaches
    • Stiff or sore jaw muscles
    • Pain in the temple area, or
    • Locking of the jaw joint

We offer a free consultation to discuss about the treatment of TMD.
