TMJ Disorder

As with all other joints on the body, your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can produce complexities that can become very troublesome or even serious. Being one of the more complicated joints on your body, the TMJ is responsible for a large portion of your lower facial activity. This joint is located in front of your ears and is the connection between your lower jawbone (the mandible) and skull. Its intricacies make it more difficult to diagnose and treat; however, vast advances have been made regarding the treatment and care of this part of the body.


As mentioned before, this joint is responsible for or plays a role in many of the movements in your face, having direct effect with any and all actions you take with your mouth and jaw. Pain and/or a “clicking” sensation in the jaw are the more common signs of TMJ Disorder. Saying this, other symptoms of this disorder include lockjaw, earaches, dizziness, and even headaches. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms or believe you are having problems relating to your TMJ, please give us a call so we can discuss your occurrences.
