What is temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ/TMD)?
Temporomandibular disorders occur from damage to the jaw, jaw joint, and surrounding facial muscles. Signs and symptoms of the disorder including a clicking or popping sound upon opening the mouth, migraines or soreness when waking up in the morning (due to clenching or grinding), and having the jaw lock in an open or closed mouth position. If you have any of these symptoms, call our office for an evaluation. We can discuss your treatment options, which may include a splint that is worn at night.
