TMJ

TMJ

Have you been suffering from migraines or headaches?

Do you have neck aches, back aches or shoulder aches?

Does your jaw crackle, click or pop?

Do you have jaw pain, facial pain, dizziness or tinnitus?

Are your symptoms caused by an improper bite?
You may have a jaw joint problem or TMD.

TMJ or more properly TMJ dysfunction or TMD affects the joints of your jaws and can affect your entire body.  It has been coined the “Great Impostor” because its symptoms mimic many other issues, such as headaches, migraines, ear infections, among a few.  It can be very debilitating and can be treated non-surgically in our office. Medications just mask the symptoms, they do nothing for the root cause of your problem. Some of our guests that have been told that their fibromyalgia is permanent or their tinnitus is permanent were happy to see it disappear after treating their TMD. Our treatment will let the joint heal in a new more physiologic position and correct the poor jaw/skull relationship. Please click on the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment links to the other areas to see if your conditions match and see how we diagnose and treat the problem and not just mask the symptoms.
