TMJ Treatment

TMJ Treatment

Temporomandibular disorders are a group of problems that cause pain and poor function in the jaw joint and the muscles responsible for jaw movement. They’re also called TMD, or TMJ (short for temporomandibular joint) disorders.

TMD can be just a nuisance — or it can be a life-altering problem. When it’s less severe, crunching down on a hard bit of food can shoot a bolt of pain through the jaw joint — unpleasant, to be sure, but not serious.
