What You Need To Know About TMD?

Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD), occur when the joints of your jaw — Temporomandibular Joints (TMJ) are not working properly. This can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. Often there could be a combination of problems that add to your TMJ pain. If you chronically grind your teeth, are diagnosed with osteoarthritis, or your facial muscles are tight from stress, all could be causing you to experiencing TMJ pain. Our orthodontist can talk with you about your jaw health, and work with you on solutions to your TMJ pain. Whether you have chronic headaches, or your jaw clicks when you open your mouth, TMD can be a debilitating problem for those that suffer from jaw problems.

What are TMD Symptoms?
