TMJ Treatment Specialist in Stamford CT

Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your lower jawbone to your skull. That connection is at the sides of your head, just underneath your ears.
Normally, you don’t think about these joints, but if one or both start causing you pain or forcing you to limit your jaw movement, seek TMJ treatment from Stamford Dental Arts. Your dentist can resolve the issue and give you advice so it doesn’t return. Call for an appointment today.

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction involves the joint that attaches the mandible to the temporal bones at each side of your head. The temporomandibular joints, along with the surrounding muscles, give you the ability to chew your food, talk, and even yawn. When the joints don’t work properly, you experience symptoms such as:

Tenderness in your jaw, which may be accompanied by severe jaw pain
Stiffness of the jaw muscles
Painful popping or clicking sounds each time your mouth opens or closes
Pain on one side or both sides of your head
Difficulty opening and closing your mouth
Swelling in your face and jaw area
Difficulty chewing food since your mouth doesn’t work properly
Severe shooting headaches that resemble migraines

Treatment for TMJ dysfunction may be required when you experience symptoms severely enough. If you ever feel extreme pain in the joints and muscles on either side of your jaw, call on your dentist as soon as you can.
