Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders commonly called ‘TMJ’, are a group of conditions that cause pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and muscles that control jaw movement. Symptoms can include pain or tenderness around the ear, the jaw joint or the muscles of the jaw. You may have trouble opening or closing your mouth and hear ‘popping’ or ‘clicking’ noises when you chew. If you suspect that you have these issues, our team will complete a thorough examination and create a treatment plan for you. This treatment plan could include relaxation techniques, referrals to other specialists or an occlusal splint (night guard). Give us a call today so we can assess your needs and create a treatment plan that works for you.
