Where does it hurt? Your jaw? Face, neck or shoulders? Maybe you’ve noticed odd symptoms such as your jaw locking, or making popping noises.
Temporomandibular joint disorder means your jaw joint is out of balance (TMD or TMJ). It can affect much more than you can imagine! Numbness or tingling in your hands and fingers, ringing in your ears, tooth clenching and grinding. No matter how TMD affects you, it can mean pain, discomfort, and stress.
We can help relieve your symptoms by gently realigning your bite. We often use splint therapy, a small dental appliance custom-fit to cover and adjust several or all of your upper or lower teeth.
Please don’t suffer in silence! Even if you don’t think your symptoms are related to a dental problem, let us know. Call us at our Asheboro dental office at 336-629-9146 to confirm that it’s TMD, and begin experiencing relief!
