TMJ, or the temporomandibular joint, is the joint that connects your lower jaw to the rest of your head. Sometimes the TMJ can become stressed or misaligned due to injury, trauma, arthritis, bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching), or other factors, which can result in TMJ disorders or TMD. When this occurs, you may develop painful symptoms. Some of the common symptoms of TMJ disorders include (but are not limited to):

  • Inability to open your mouth very wide
  • Clicking, grinding, and popping sounds in the jaw joint when you open and close your mouth
  • A stuck or “locked” jaw
  • Painful chewing and speaking
  • Pain in the jaw, face, ears, neck, shoulders, and back

Your local dentists, Dr. Perpich and Dr. Carlson, can provide several types of TMJ treatment to help relieve the painful symptoms of TMJ disorders, and to help your jaw joint function optimally once again. Some types of treatment may include trigger point injections to treat chronic pain, and we also offer occlusal (bite) splints or night guards. Occlusal splints and night guards are used to prevent teeth grinding and clenching while you sleep, and they can hold your jaw in a better position as well to help relieve stress on the TMJ.

For more information on how we can help to treat your TMJ disorder, we welcome you to call or visit our office today.
