TMJ Treatment

Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a small joint located in front of the ear where the skull and lower jaw meet, allowing the lower jaw to move and function. If you experience jaw pain, earaches, headaches, a limited ability to open or close your mouth, clicking or grating sounds, you may have Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) and may need treatment. Treatment may range from conservative dental and medical care to complex surgery, involving either arthroscopy or the repair of damaged tissue by a direct surgical approach.

We want you to say goodbye to dental anxiety, so let us know if you are experiencing any of these and we can find a solution together!
