If you are living with complications caused by TMJ, the team at Thomas & Thomas Dental is here for you. Temporomandibular joint disorder (or TMJ) is a term that describes pain or discomfort surrounding the joint and muscles in the jaw. It can be brought on by a physical injury or could occur from having misaligned teeth or an off bite. If left untreated, chronic symptoms can have a negative effect on one’s quality of life.
TMJ can cause:
- severe headaches
- neck pain
- ringing in the ears
- clicking in the jaw
- numbness or loss of sensation
- trouble sleeping
- difficulty or pain while chewing
If you have TMJ, you don’t have to suffer helplessly with chronic pain. We offer treatment options that address the root issue, rather than simply masking the problem with pain medication. Call (602) 230-0811 to reach Thomas & Thomas Dental at our Phoenix, AZ office. We’ll work together to solve your TMJ troubles, so you can finally enjoy the comfort you deserve.
