TMJ is the most common form of jaw pain. With proper chiropractic and wellness care, the discomfort associated with TMJ can be relieved.

Causes of TMJ

  • Grinding or clenching teeth when sleeping
  • The joint’s cartilage is damaged by arthritis
  • Erosion or movement of the soft cushion or disc erodes causing the ball and socket to move out of proper alignment
  • Facial tension caused by extreme and chronic stress

Common Symptoms of TMJ

  • Clicking or popping sound when closing and opening our mouth
  • Pain or tenderness in the face

If your TMJ pain persists and relief is nowhere in sight, our doctors would be more than glad to evaluate your symptoms and offer treatment.
