At Larson Dental we are proud to offer treatment for temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMJ, to provide our patients with relief. TMJ is caused by inflammation within the temporomandibular joint, which is the joint that connects your jawbone to your skull.
What are the symptoms of TMJ?
TMJ causes pain and discomfort along the jaw point and can make it painful to move or operate your jaw.
Jaw pain doesn’t always equate to TMJ, but if you are experiencing headaches, difficulty chewing, or pain in the jaw, face, and ear, it is highly likely that you are suffering from TMJ.
While at home treatments and over-the-counter pain relievers can help with some symptoms, we recommend seeking medical diagnosis and treatment from a dentist. We will identify the cause of your pain and work with you to find the best treatment plan that will help you feel better as soon as possible.
