What is TMJ?

Short for temporomandibular joint disorder, TMJ is a condition that occurs when a misaligned bite creates undue stress on the joint that connects the jaw bone to the skull bone.

A slightly crooked jaw wears upon this joint every time the mouth is opened or closed, causing the joint to deteriorate over time. The misalignment prevents the proper flow of oxygen to the muscles in the face and jaw, resulting in the tension that causes headaches and stress to the back, neck and shoulders.

TMJ Symptoms Include:

  • Migraine like headaches
  • Jaw clicking
  • Ear congestion
  • Facial pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Back Pain

Sufferers of TMJ should seek treatment since the impacted joint is critical for such daily functions as eating, talking, yawning, sleeping and laughing.
