Jaw Pain and TMJ Disorder in Rockwood

TMJ

TMJ is caused by inflammation in the joint between your jaw and your skull. This inflammation can cause headaches and jaw pain and may cause difficulty opening and closing your jaw and swallowing. We can diagnose and treat the symptoms and causes of TMJ.

TMJ diagnosis

Inflammation is caused by factors that put stress on your jaws. To diagnose TMJ we review your lifestyle, general health, and eating habits. We also examine your mouth and face to identify any medical causes.

Treatment

Treatment for TMJ is a combination of treating the inflammation and addressing the causes of stress on your jaw. Common treatments include medication, stretching and physical therapy, and dental correction such as orthodontic treatment for misaligned teeth or bite appliances.

If you are suffering from chronic jaw pain, call us to make an appointment.
