TMJ Syndrome Causes, Symptoms, Treatment
TMJ syndrome is a complex disorder that can stem from many different conditions that affect the muscles, nerves and joints in the jaw. Jaw and facial injuries, arthritis, bite misalignment, imbalanced arches and other stresses to the jaw can cause TMJ syndrome. Finding the cause can help relieve the symptoms that can accompany TMJ. Dr. Perkins’ innovative treatments can help relieve many symptoms that are linked to TMD, including:
- Tenderness or swelling in the jaw and face
- Jaw movement noises like popping, grinding or clicking
- Problems chewing
- Headaches or migraines
- Shoulder and neck pain caused by TMJ
- Earaches and ringing in the ears
- Sleeping problems
Dr. Perkins understands how stress on the jaw can cause these symptoms and creates a treatment plan to relieve pressure and stop the pain. Many people with TMJ syndrome experience relief from their symptoms immediately when treatment begins, with long-term freedom from TMD discomfort.
