TMJ Disorder

The reality is many patients suffer with temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) way longer than they should.

Many fear that the only option for TMJ disorder is surgery, but that’s not the case. Almost 95% of patients with TMJ dysfunction can be treated without surgery.

The most common symptoms of TMJ are muscle fatigue and soreness, headaches, clenching, and even ear pain can be related to TMJ dysfunction. That’s a pretty diverse and confusing set of symptoms. It often takes years for them to see the proper provider. We connect the dots to treat and heal TMJ disorder.
