If you are living with complications caused by TMJ, the team at Alta Canyon Dental in Sandy, UT is here for you. Temporomandibular joint disorder (or TMJ) is a term that describes pain or discomfort surrounding the joint and muscles in the jaw. It can be brought on by a physical injury or could occur from having misaligned teeth or an off bite. If left untreated, chronic symptoms can have a negative effect on one’s quality of life.
TMJ can cause:
- severe headaches
- neck pain
- ringing in the ears
- clicking in the jaw
- numbness or loss of sensation
- trouble sleeping
- difficulty or pain while chewing
