What is TMJ/TMJD?

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, otherwise known as TMJD, is a general term that encompasses pain and dysfunction in some form of the muscles that are responsible for moving your jaw.

The most significant symptom of this condition is pain, although difficult/noisy jaw movement can also accompany it. If you suffer from headaches, earaches, tenderness of the jaw muscles, or dull, aching facial pain, these signs and symptoms may point to TMJD.

TMJ disorders can have a variety of causes, but most typically occur when the teeth do not come together evenly, and when they interfere with the chewing muscles and jaw joints working smoothly.

There’s no need to suffer from pain caused by this condition or to experience worsening dental health as the result of letting it go untreated for too long. There are several treatment methods available, and many of them are non-invasive.

Treatment is Available

If this sounds like you, don’t hesitate to call for a consultation. Leaving this condition untreated can lead to long-term oral health problems. However, TMJ/TMJD treatment can in many cases be non-invasive while still remaining effective.

Dr. Alexander will prescribe an individualized treatment sequence just for you, and you can look forward to a more comfortable, healthier future. Become a healthier, happier dental patient when you call our office at 561-732-8877 today!
