TMD & TMJ Therapy Scottsdale Arizona

Jaw pain got you down?

If you are having jaw pain, difficulty chewing, trouble opening your mouth fully, or clicking and locking of the jaw, come see us today and start TMD/TMJ therapy with our knowledgable dentists.

TMD or Temporomandibular disorder includes pain in the joints, ligaments and muscles of the TMJ (temporomandibular joint). The TMJ is the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull, and it is essential to the function of your jaw. TMJ disorders may be caused by bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching), increased stress, misaligned teeth, a bad bite (occlusal) relationship, or injury. The symptoms of TMJ disorder may also be caused by inflammation of the temporomandibular joint.

TMJ disorder can be very painful and exhibits symptoms such as hyperactive muscles, extensive wear on the teeth, and disc displacement; in most cases, it is a more progressive disease with milder symptoms like headaches and pain in the head, neck, shoulder, and ear areas.
