Dental Treatments that Lasts

A common misdiagnosed issue is TMJ, otherwise known as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. People go to through various head and neck pain not realizing that they actually have a TMJ disorder.The temporomandibular joint connects each end of the lower jaw to the skull’s temporal bone. Normally, these joints have great flexibility and allow the jaw to move upwards, downwards, and side to side, helping facilitate speaking, chewing, and yawning.

Common TMJ Symptoms

When suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder, your jaw joint or joints and adjacent facial tissues surrounding the affected joints do not move properly and as smoothly as they normally should. Due to this excess tension and dysfunction in the joint(s) and/or facial muscles, you can possibly experience discomforting symptoms such as popping and clicking jaws, lockjaw, and even swelling on either or each side of the face.

A few common symptoms of TMJ include:

  • Jaw pain

  • Severe headaches

  • Neck pain

  • Difficulty with chewing

  • Hard to bite down

  • Ringing in the ears

These symptoms, as well as others, can make living through the day unbearable. Dr. Villar treats the whole patient to optimize the management of your TMJ condition. Simply book your appointment and let him answer all of your questions.
