Have you been experiencing facial or jaw pain? Maybe the pain has been causing difficulty chewing, frequent headaches, limited ability to open your mouth, swelling, and/ or lockjaw. If these symptoms describe you, you may be a candidate for TMJ/ TMD treatment.
Temporomandibular joint disorder is often abbreviated and referred to as TMJ or TMD. In fact, you may find that many dental and healthcare professionals use the terms TMJ and TMD interchangeably. The joints involved in this disorder are located on each side of your head. The joints work with the muscles and ligaments to help you open and close your mouth for talking, chewing, or yawning. TMJ / TMD happens if these joints do not work as they should.
