Your temporomandibular joint is located on either side of your face, near your jaw bone. It basically acts like a hinge that allows you to comfortably open and close your mouth. When you have a TMJ disorder, otherwise known as TMD, the area isn’t functioning properly and may cause you pain. Today, we are sharing a few signs of a TMJ disorder.
If you notice any signs of a TMJ disorder, we can treat you with a custom mouthguard that will ease the tension in your jaw and prevent teeth from grinding. We can also work with you on additional treatment methods to ease your TMD.
