Are You At Risk For TMD?

Have you suffered from whiplash? Do you deal with anxiety or stress? Is clenching or grinding your teeth an everyday occurrence? Conditions like these can increase your risk of
temporomandibular disorder, also known as TMD. TMD arises when there is a problem with the fit between the top and bottom teeth, your jaw joint or the facial muscles associated with chewing and jaw movement.

Relief From Pain Is Available

Do you suffer from unexplained ear pain? Does your jaw hurt after eating or when you wake up in the morning, and you’re not sure why? We encounter patients everyday who have pain issues like these but don’t know what’s causing it. They don’t know who to turn to for help, and therefore, suffer needlessly from pain that is easily treatable. The culprit could be temporomandibular disorder, also known as TMD.

Pain in Jaw Joints? Could Be TMD

Have you ever yawned really wide and felt your jaw catch? Or perhaps when chewing vigorously, you feel like your jaws have gotten out of alignment? Do you have headaches and jaw pain? All of these symptoms can be signals that your TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is not functioning properly.

Finding the Cause of Unexplained Facial Pain

Do you or a loved one suffer from pain on one side of your face that comes on suddenly and feels like you have been shocked? Is the pain brief or does it linger for several minutes? Do you ever experience a burning sensation that is not as pronounced as the shocking pain but lasts longer? These symptoms can be related to two different forms of a condition called trigeminal neuralgia, and some patients suffer from both.
