Do you experience any of the following?
- Pain when opening or closing mouth
- Trouble chewing
- Jaw becoming stuck open or shut
- Headaches or ear pain
- Clicking or popping sounds when opening your mouth
- Teeth Grinding
Although many of these symptoms can be caused by other health issues, there’s a chance they might be associated with TMJ (or, also called TMD). TMJ/TMD is a disorder involving the jaw joint and the muscles surrounding it. If you think you may have this issue, we at Smiles By Design in Hortonville would love to help you diagnose it and possibly help to relieve the symptoms. In very severe cases, TMD/TMJ may require surgery but there are other pain relief methods that can be used to provide a more comfortable lifestyle.
