TMJ Disorders

The temporomandibular joint is a complex joint that involves bones, cartilage, muscles, and teeth. When any of these parts are out of alignment, or function abnormally, it can create an unhealthy condition. The teeth may exhibit excessive wear on the biting surface, on the front surface near your gums, and the condition can also be very painful. You may hear clicking and popping in your joint, your joint may lock open during yawning, and you may wake up with headaches.
