TMJ

WHAT ARE TMJs?
Temporomandibular joints — TMJs — are located on both sides of the face in front of the ears, connecting the jawbone to the skull. Between the top end of the jaw and the socket in the skull is a disc of cartilage, which — like the discs in the neck and back — serve as shock absorbers, protecting the bones from hitting each other.

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) describes a group of diseases that can involve the jaw joint, the muscles, or the cartilage disc that control jaw movement and the dental occlusion.  These diseases can cause muscle fatigue, spasms, headaches, migraines, joint clicking, and even joint locking.

If you are suffering jaw pain and headaches, it may be caused by your TMJs.  Don’t put up with the pain and discomfort any longer, book a new patient consultation with Dr. Dahan.  Dr. Dahan is highly trained in how to treat all types of facial pain in a nonsurgical approach.
COULD I BE SUFFERING WITH SOMETHING OTHER THAN TMD?
TMD makes up a small segment of numerous pain conditions that affect the face.  During your new patient consultation, Dr. Dahan will perform an extensive examination to properly diagnose and treat you.
