Are you suffering from chronic headaches, earaches or jaw pain?
You may have temporomandibular joint dysfunction, called TMD.
TMD can be caused by a misalignment of, or inflammation in, the sensitive jaw joints. This can cause muscles to become stressed, which irritates nerves and leads to symptoms that range from mild to severe.
Symptoms of TMJ disorder include:
- Headaches or migraines
- Chronic earaches
- Popping, clicking jaw joints
- Jaw, face, head, neck pain
- Low back pain
- Tingling fingers
- Inability to fully open/close the mouth
- Teeth grinding (bruxism)
- Tooth wear
How we can help: For conservative, effective treatment, we can create a custom oral appliance to address the jaw alignment and relieve nagging symptoms. If you suffer from TMD symptoms, consult with Dr. Taylor to determine whether an oral appliance might relieve your pain.
