FIND THE RELIEF YOU NEED
Mequon TMJ & TMD TreatmentsIf you have chronic pain around your jaw, near your ear or on the side of your face, you may have TMD, which is temporomandibular disorder. Sometimes people incorrectly use the term TMJ to refer to these problems, when in fact TMJ is the abbreviation for the temporomandibular joint — or jaw joint.
TMD signifies regular discomfort or pain around the jaw area that can manifest itself in other areas of your body such as your back, neck or head. Everything from injury to inflammation can cause TMJ and it results from your jaw's mandibles not resting properly due to issues with complex jaw joints.
If you think you suffer from TMD, there is hope. Depending on how serious your TMD is, we can recommend various types of minor or major treatments to suit your needs. Contact Mequon Smile Design to seek relief for TMD pain.
