Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, also known as Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction or TMJ Syndrome, describes a variety of painful problems stemming from the joint that connects the skull to the lower jaw. These disorders can often cause severe pain, headaches, clicks and pops, and can effect how you chew, talk, or even yawn.
Relief may be just a nightguard away! Otherwise, adjusting one’s bite through orthodontics can help relieve headaches, muscular pain, pops and clicks associated with TMJ/TMD. It can even be helpful if your teeth are already perfectly straight! Email Nashville's Barbieri Orthodontics today or call (615) 333-2010 to find out more.
