Spring Dental Arts in Spring, Texas can diagnose and treat temporomandibular joint disorders using a variety of methods. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects the jawbones and is what allows you to eat and speak properly. A TMJ that is not aligned correctly can be painful and uncomfortable. A temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) can also impair function, making it hard to perform daily tasks. Spring Dental Arts can help realign the TMJ so that you can move your jaw comfortably and live pain-free again.
If you are experiencing consistent jaw pain, pain in or around the ear, trouble opening and closing your mouth to speak and eat, or hear popping noises when you move your mouth, you may be experiencing TMD. TMD also manifests as recurrent headaches, facial pain, neck pain, tinnitus, and nasal congestion.
