Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Pain Dysfunction Syndrome
TMJ dysfunction may cause a mal-alignment of teeth, jaws and muscles. Symptoms include pain, clicking, grating sounds, and difficulty in opening the mouth widely. Some dysfunctions are induced by trauma, others are iatrogenic: caused by dental restorations that do not adequately support the way a person bites. We have successful non-surgical treatments for this serious problem.
