What Is TMD?
A TMD, or temporomandibular disorder, is a condition that affects the jaw. It’s often a result of clenching or grinding your teeth at night, but it can also be brought on by stress, arthritis, or as a result of an injury.
TMD can lead to pain in the jaw as well as the neck and facial muscles, and this pain can have a serious effect on the sufferer’s quality of life. If you believe you might have a TMD, reach out! We can provide solutions that will ease the pain and make your jaw healthy again.
Do I Have TMD?
The following may be indicators that you’re experiencing a TMD:
- Clicking, popping, or other unusual sounds in the jaw, especially when opening or closing.
- Sensitivity or pain in the neck, face, or along the jaw joint.
- Difficulty chewing, or a feeling as though your upper and lower teeth aren’t meeting properly.
- Jaws that temporarily become stuck either open or closed.
- A sudden lack of ability to open the jaw widely.
If you are noticing any of these indicators, please contact our office. We can help you determine if you are experiencing TMD.
