What is TMJ / TMJD?
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJD) is a syndrome that occurs when the muscles around the jaw become inflamed. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder causes include arthritis, injury and clenching or the grinding of your teeth while you sleep.
What is the treatment for a sore jaw?
A night guard for your teeth works to combat this issue by preventing them from clenching and grinding while you sleep. TMJD treatment starts with a consultation with our doctors, where they examine your jaw, discuss your symptoms, and may take x-rays to determine the appropriate course of TMJD treatment. This could lead to various treatment options that will help alleviate your symptoms, or in more extreme cases, a referral to a TMJD Specialist.
