TMJ, or TMD stands for Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction. This is when there are issues in the joints where your head and jaw meet.
Many people suffer from TMJ and some of the common causes of it are tooth or jaw injury, misaligned teeth, grinding or clenching teeth, stress, and arthritis.

What can I do if I have TMJ?
Because TMJ is a common issue we have found lots of options to help relieve pain. Some great options we have found are to relax and massage the joint. We may also recommend other options such as a muscle relaxer, or a mouthguard to help prevent grinding or clenching. Our team is ready to help you find relief from TMJ.
