TMJ (TEMPRO-MANDIBULAR JOINT DISFUNCTION)
What are the symptoms of TMJ?
TMJ (Tempro-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction) is a common condition affecting a wide variety of people.
You may be suffering with severe headaches, jaw pain, grinding teeth and occasional ringing in the ears.
The majority of sufferers are unaware that their dentist is able to treat these problems.
The symptoms usually worsen during stressful periods and can also result in neck pain and dizziness.
The most common cause of TMJ is the misalignment of teeth - also known as ‘bad bite’.
It is possible for the dentist to realign or adjust the teeth without the need for painful or expensive surgeries. This realignment will stop the headaches, jaw pain and dizziness.
It is very important that you make an appointment with your dentist if you are experiencing the above symptoms.
