Pain and TMJ

The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is the jaw joint located on your face just beside your ears. Its proper function is essential to eating and speaking. If you experience a dysfunction in this joint, referred to as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), the team at TMJ Therapy Centre can offer you the comprehensive solutions you need.

Why Does TMJ Pain Occur?

You might be wondering why you’re plagued with discomfort in your jaw joint. There seem to be many causes, with no single source agreed upon. You might grind or clench your teeth at night or do so during the daytime, too. You may notice TMJ pain in times of stress in your life. Since the sources are many, it’s vital that you have a thorough examination with a qualified professional to determine the cause of your TMJ.
