The TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is the joint connecting the skull to the lower jaw. Problems in the TMJ can be caused by a variety of factors, including, but not limited to muscle tension, teeth misalignment, and trauma. TMJ disorders can also have many symptoms, including pain in the jaw muscles, clicking or popping of the jaw, and chronic headaches or migraines. At Bensalem Bucks Dental, we offer several treatments to restore function and health to the TMJ. Depending on the severity of your condition, your treatment could involve a mouth guard or more extensive work. To learn more about TMJ disorders and your treatment options, we invite you to call or visit our office in Bensalem today.
