TMJ Treatment An Overview
If you constantly suffer from headaches, jaw pain, or painful chewing, you could be exhibiting signs of a bite disorder called TMJ disorder. TMJ disorder refers to a dysfunction in the temporomandibular joint. The temporomandibular joint connects the jaw and the skull, and any trauma to the joint can cause an array of painful and uncomfortable symptoms.
Patients suffer from symptoms of TMJ for years without finding relief. Most patients don’t realize their symptoms are linked to a complex dental concern.
Dr. Dennis Garpetti and Dr. Brock Hyder work with patients to determine the underlying cause of their symptoms. We can create a personalized solution based on your needs. Our goal is to help alleviate the painful symptoms of TMJ and restore your quality of life. Addressing TMJ early on may help prevent further damage to the teeth, gums, and jawbone.
