TMJ (temporomandibular joint) conditions can significantly impact an individual’s quality of life and cause severe, chronic jaw pain.
Temporomandibular joint dysfunction causes include:
- Damage to joint cartilage due to arthritis
- Damage to the joint due to a violent blow
- Disk erosion due to misalignment
TMJ Treatment & Diagnosis
TMJ treatment and diagnosis can be performed by a TMJ doctor. You should seek out the care and opinion of a TMJ doctor if your condition is getting to the point of chronic pain or preventing you from opening or closing your jaw completely.
