TMJ/ Bite Problems

TMJ/TMD - Proper Bite Alignment Will Help to Relieve Head and Jaw Pain!

Maybe you have heard that a dental occlusion (i.e. your bite) can be the cause of recurring headaches, shoulder pain, neck pain, and aching or popping jaws.

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD), commonly referred to as TMJ, is a complex disorder of the jaw joint and muscles and surrounding tissues, leading to pain and limited mobility.

There are various factors that can cause TMD, including trauma, stress, hormonal changes, and malocclusion (improperly aligned jaws affecting the bite). Sometimes teeth are worn down or missing due to accident or disease, and your jaw can no longer settle into its natural, relaxed position. Muscles become tense in this area, which leads to a variety of pain. Often patients have become accustomed to this pain and don't realize how it is affecting their quality of life. When your dental malocclusion is addressed so your jaw can return to its natural and relaxed position, pain and discomfort are eliminated. Dr. Jones uses several different procedures to correct bite problems, joint pain, or other dysfunction from TMD. You may have forgotten how good you feel without this problem, and we invite you to discover how you will benefit from this change.
