What is TMJ?
TMD (temporomandibular disorders), most commonly referred to as TMJ, is characterized by significant pain in the jaw and limitation in jaw joint movement. This disorder can affect chewing, talking, and swallowing. In some cases, it can even disrupt breathing.
There are several symptoms that are associated with TMJ, including recurrent facial pain, swelling, constant teeth grinding, facial sensitivity, jaw joint locking, and a limited range of motion in the jaw.
TMJ symptoms vary, but generally can include:
- Pain and tenderness around the jaw, ears, cheeks and neck
- Stiffness in the jaw
- Painful chewing
- Pain while yawning
- Locking of the jaw
- Uncontrolled change of facial expression
- Changes in how the upper and lower teeth fit together
If you are experiencing significant jaw pain or discomfort, our team will first perform a thorough exam to determine a correct diagnosis and plan your treatment accordingly.
Our TMJ Treatment Can Help!
For patients who are diagnosed with TMJ, our dentists can help ease the pain and treat the dysfunction using facial injections.
Though facial injections are typically used for cosmetic purposes to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, your facial appearance will be unaffected by this type of TMJ treatment. Instead, you’ll simply notice a reduction in TMJ-related symptoms like migraines and jaw pain!
