If you are not able to open your mouth properly, if your jaw joint is constantly sore, or if your jaw clicks loudly and is painful, you may have TMJ disorder (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction). This condition is not uncommon, and can be easily treated with minimally invasive techniques.
Your dentist or oral surgeon may help by balancing or replacing missing teeth. Your dental professional may also treat your TMJ by replacing dental restorations or correcting bite issues.
If your pain or discomfort is increasing in frequency, duration or intensity do not delay. Please call us so that we can evaluate your condition and offer an appropriate course of action.
