Millions of Americans suffer from head and neck pain, and in many cases, it is due to temporomandibular joint disorders, also commonly referred to as TMD. Problems can result from something as simple as a small misalignment of teeth, trauma or excess muscle tension in the affected area.
Common Symptoms of TMD and TMJ Include:
Pain in the jaw muscles or jaw area
Having trouble or experiencing soreness when opening or closing your mouth
Clicking or popping of the jaw
Changes in alignment of your upper and lower teeth
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, reach out to The Dentists in Lawrence today. Occlusal guards, physical therapy procedures and Botox are just a few ways that our team can use to help you relieve your TMD symptoms.
