TMJ Dysfunction can cause a wide range of issues that many ignore…
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects the jaw to the sides of your skull, and is located in front of the ears. When this joint is not working properly, it can result in many symptoms that, when experienced on their own, can easily be ignored. This is why if you experience the following symptoms, it is important to book an appointment at our Brandon practice for an assessment.
Common symptoms of TMJ…
- Chronic Headaches
- Difficulty swallowing
- Earaches, ringing in the ears
- Clicking or grating of the jaw
- Pain in and around the jaw joints
- Locking of the jaw or difficulty moving jaw
Treating TMJ can be tricky as it is often misdiagnosed, however our own Dr. Saylor understands TMJ Dysfunction and will be able to give you a thorough examination in order to properly pinpoint the source of the issue. As each case varies, so too do appropriate treatment options, as they can range from a simple change in diet to a full adjustment of the bite.
