What are the symptoms of TMJ Dysfunction?

The most common symptom of TMD is pain in the chewing muscles. Patients may also experience stiffness, lockjaw, pain in the face or neck, jaw clicking or grinding, and even dizziness. It’s important to see a professional if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms. Once diagnosed, you can begin treatment and get relief.

Does TMJ therapy require a specialist?

TMJ therapy does not require a specialist but does require a knowledgeable professional. While you could (and should) report to your physician if it makes you feel the most comfortable about your treatment, your dentist has extensive knowledge of not only your teeth but also your head and neck. Many dentists have extensive knowledge and experience helping patients treat and manage their TMD. Severe cases of TMD may require a specialist, in which case your dentist will give you a referral.

Can TMJ Disorders be cured?

Yes! Many instances of TMD can be cured with appropriate therapy and treatments. The sooner you have your TMD diagnosed, the sooner you can begin treatment and get back to feeling like yourself!
