TMJ symptoms are the following: popping of the jaw, difficulty swallowing, jaw pain and frequent headaches. If you have these, you may be suffering from Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ).

TMJ occurs when there is a problem with the joint that connects your jaw to your skull. This problem is often a painful inflamation.

Our experienced dentist can assess your symptoms and come to a diagnosis. TMJ is usually caused by grinding of the teeth, poor tooth alignment or a pre-existing joint condition like arthritis. Treatment ranges from pain relief to orthodontic re-alignment.
