TMJ (TMD) Therapy

When you try to open your mouth, is it painful or painful to move it from side to side with your mouth? You may be facing a common problem called Temporomandibular Joint pain or Temporomandibular Dysfunction. Other symptoms include:

  • Pain in the neck and/or shoulder
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Hearing loss or ear pain
  • Grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw while sleeping
  • Constantly feeling fatigued
  • Hearing a popping or grating sound, or any other noise in your jaw joints
  • Suffering from chronic headaches in your temples or above your eyes

Because TMJ symptoms can often be caused by many factors, there is no “standardized” way to treat these conditions. That said, the first step to any successful treatment is a proper diagnosis. Park Haven Dental can perform an evaluation of your symptoms and concerns and suggest a customized treatment therapy for your condition—and in many cases, We can work with you to identify additional treatment partners—such as physical therapists, chiropractors, hair/muscle specialists or even massage therapists—who will all work together for your comfort.
