Temporomandibular Disorder, also known as TMD, spawns from discomfort in your temporomandibular joints (TMJ), which connects the lower jawbone to the skull. Throughout the day, these joints have substantial usage during chewing and swallowing that can lead to pain and movement restrictions.
- Jaw pain
- Frequent head and neck pain
- Muscle spasms in the jaw
- Swelling around the jaw
- Limited jaw opening
- Alignment changes in the teeth
- Clicking or popping sounds generated by the jaw
The first step to helping with TMD is to talk to your dentist at Sindledecker Dentistry. We can go over your symptoms, help with at-home advice to prevent further damage, and determine if any further treatment is necessary.
