TMJ Disorder Treatment
At Perspective Dental, we specialize in treating TMJ in Austin, TX.
TMJ stands for the temporomandibular joint, which is the joint that attaches the jaw to the skull.
As with many other joints on the body, this joint can experience problems over time, causing pain and swelling. At Perspective Dentistry, we offer a range of TMJ treatment options to alleviate the pain and discomfort that you are feeling and to give you free range of the jawbone.
The most common clinical symptoms of temporomandibular (TMJ) disorders include:
- Pain in the jaw and surrounding structures
- Pain in the face
- Popping or clicking in the jaw joints
- A crunching sound in the jaw joints
- Restricted opening
