The Most Effective TMJ Treatment
Temporomandibular joint syndrome or TMJ/TMD is a complex disorder that is often misdiagnosed and ineffectually treated. This is not a singular condition, but a variety of symptoms and dysfunctions that stem from the temporomandibular joint and surrounding muscles and nerves. There is not one cause of TMJ, but a variety of possible factors. TMJ treatment must begin with finding the underlying cause to get effective results for alleviating symptoms. To relieve symptoms effectively requires a TMJ specialist like Bob Perkins, DDS.
