Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located under your ear and is where your jaw connects to your skull. This joint is commonly susceptible to discomfort, tenderness, and dysfunction. If you are experiencing TMJ issues, we encourage you to visit our Livonia dental office to have our team provide treatment. We offer remedies that will relieve any pain and dysfunction you may be experiencing.
Common symptoms to look out for:
- Muscle Discomfort: This muscle discomfort could include soreness or stiffness in the cheeks or temple area. This can occur from clenching or grinding teeth.
- Joint Discomfort: This is a form of arthritis and can be relieved by being prescribed joint pain medication.
- Clicking: When you open your mouth, you may hear a clicking or popping sound. This is caused by shifting of the joint disc between your skill and jaw.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
