When your jaw hurts, it is hard to concentrate, sleep or enjoy your life. It can be painful to talk, laugh, eat or enjoy a tasty beverage. The jaw is a complex mechanism which can be impacted by many issues. When your bite is misaligned or too much pressure is on your jaw, you can feel pain and discomfort that will not go away without treatment. Our TMJ specialist can offer jaw pain relief. Resetting the jaw and creating balance in the mechanism can relieve pressure and stop your jaw pain for good.
