Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, or TMD, is a problem with the hinges that connect your jaw to the rest of your head. It can cause clicking or popping when the jaw is moved, or make moving your jaw while eating or even talking painful. Sometimes people with TMD say their jaw has gotten “stuck” while opening or closing their mouth. This condition can cause constant headaches and even earaches. If any of this sounds familiar to you, you may need to be evaluated for TMD. At Muse Dental Studio, we can determine if your issues are caused by TMD or something else, and we can help correct the problem, leaving you free of pain, by using any of a variety of noninvasive therapies.

The way a patient’s bite comes together can cause TMD. A bite that is not properly aligned can place pressure on nerves and muscles where no pressure would normally be found. We may be able to resolve this problem by simply reshaping a tooth or two or by placing an appliance for restoration that rebalances the forces used in jaw movement. Adjustments normally result in instant pain relief.
