What is TMJ?

We all have a TMJ or temporomandibular joint. It is the hinge joint that connects your skull with the lower jaw. When this joint gets inflamed due to misalignment, many painful complications can arise. You could be suffering with TMJ disorder if you have any of the following chronic symptoms:

  • Cannot open mouth very wide
  • Jaw gets “stuck” open or closed
  • You hear clicking, popping, or grating noises when you open and close your mouth
  • Neck aches or headaches
  • Toothaches
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Pain in your face, jaw, neck, shoulders, or around your ears when you chew, speak, or yawn

Treatment for TMJ in Phoenix, AZ

Sometimes TMJ disorder will go away on its own with ample rest of your jaw joint and perhaps an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory. If your symptoms do not go away, you will need to see Dr. Maro immediately. Dr. Maro will diagnose the source of your TMJ pain and provide the appropriate treatment to resolve your pain, align your bite, and save your teeth.
