Relieve Jaw Pain and Enjoy a Comfortable Smile
TMJ covers the area around your face, jaw, and shoulder. It is the abbreviation of Temporomandibular Joints. This part of the body is a frequent source of pain and discomfort for patients.
The TMJ is located on both sides of the face, generally in front of the ear. It controls essential oral functions such as opening and closing your mouth, chewing food, and speaking. The TMJ is involved during occasions where you are speaking with your friend or enjoying a meal.
When patients experience misaligned bites, jaw pain, or general discomfort, the TMJ may be the source of the problem. TMJ problems can develop and invite secondary symptoms when not treated promptly, these include ear pain, neck discomfort, headaches, tooth aches, joint lock, and shoulder pain.
