TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction. TMJ is a condition that consists of joint issues where the head and joints meet. It is common and easy to treat, though it may take time to find the right treatment. You can rest assured knowing that Platinum Dental Care will work to find the right treatment for you.
Common symptoms of TMJ are headaches, earaches, jaw aches, or clicking or locking of the jaw while chewing. If you are experiencing any of these regularly, give our office a call.
What causes TMJ?
TMJ is often caused by tooth or jaw injury, misalignment of teeth, grinding or clenching teeth, stress, or arthritis. While we most often expect to see TMJ in adults, it’s a condition that can affect anyone!
If your child is complaining of particular pain in their jaw, don’t hesitate to come on in and visit Dr. Bills!
