What is TMJ?

TMJ (temporomandibular joints) connects the lower jaw with the skull. They are a pair of joints located in front of each ear, and consist of the mandible (the lower jaw) and the temporal bone (the side and base of the skull).

TMJ disorders are caused by trauma, an improper bite, arthritis or wear and tear. Symptoms include jaw tenderness, headaches, earaches, and facial pain.

Find Relief through Our TMJ Treatment

Does your jaw ache constantly? Do you experience frequent headache, toothaches and/or earaches? Does your jaw click and pop? Any or all of these symptoms could indicate a problem with your TMJ, or temporomandibular joint. This important joint connects your skull's temporal bones to your jaw. When it malfunctions, you have problems chewing, talking, yawning and opening your mouth wide or closing it fully. You may also experience frequent pain, tenderness and swelling.
