Are you suffering from chronic headaches, earaches or jaw pain?
You may have temporomandibular joint dysfunction, called TMJ disorder.
TMJ is a misalignment of the sensitive jaw joints. This can cause muscles to become stressed, which irritates nerves and leads to symptoms that range from mild to severe.
Symptoms of TMJ disorder include:
Headaches or migraines
Popping, clicking jaw joints
Jaw, face, head, neck pain
Low back pain
Inability to fully open/close the mouth
Teeth grinding (bruxism)
How we can help: For conservative, effective treatment, your dentist can create a custom oral appliance to correct jaw alignment and relieve nagging symptoms. If you suffer from TMJ symptoms, consult with your dentist to determine whether an oral appliance will relieve your pain.
Dr. Allen Shapiro and Dr. Brian Shapiro want to help you relieve your TMJ symptoms. For more information, please call (215) 673-1333 or click where it says “Schedule Now” on this page, and we will be in touch with you shortly.
