If you experience frequent headaches or facial pain, you may be suffering from a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. TMJ disorders can be attributed to a variety of causes, including arthritis, injury, jaw misalignment and teeth grinding. Symptoms of this condition vary, so it’s important have your 96732 TMJ dentist evaluate your symptoms and perform a comprehensive assessment to determine the underlying cause of your condition.
The temporomandibular joints act as the hinges of your jaws on either side of your face. Issues with the TMJ can lead to a variety of difficulties, from interfering with the most basic functional uses of your mouth, to excess strain on surrounding musculature. One of the major difficulties with TMJ disorder is that it can be attributed to a wide spectrum of underlying causes, from arthritis, teeth grinding or bruxism, to injury, stress, or improper tooth or jaw alignment. Because the TMJ is one of the most frequently used joints in the body, it can be very painful when it gets inflamed, impacting and interfering with many aspects of your normal daily routine.
