Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD, or “TMJ” for short) is a condition that involves the function of the primary jaw joint.

Symptoms often include:

  • Popping, clicking, or locking of the jaw
  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain
  • Abnormal tooth wear

If an abnormality is present in the jaw or the bite of the teeth, it can cause symptoms of TMJ disorder to develop.

How is TMJ Treated?

The team will assess the function of a patient’s jaw during an exam to determine whether or not it is working properly. Several types of TMJ disorders can be addressed through non-surgical methods, such as bite splint therapy or orthodontics.
