Leawood Pain Relief
Your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) are located on both sides of the face in front of the ears, connecting the jawbone (mandible) to the skull (temporal bone). They are the most complicated joints in the human body. These joints pivot and slide, allowing us to open our mouths wide and move our jaws from left to right.
When your TMJs aren’t working properly, you may experience jaw clicking, popping or locking during movement. Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) can cause significant pain, make chewing difficult, and adversely affect your bite. Some patients also experience swelling on the side of the face, toothaches, headaches, neck aches, earaches and hearing problems.
Using the principles of Rejuvenation Dentistry, Dental Health by Herre can diagnose TMD and develop a comprehensive plan for treatment that will correct the problem and relieve your symptoms.
