People often ask me about TMJ Disorder. They want to know what it is, and why their jaw can cause such a variety of aches and pains throughout their body. We made this simple animated video to help explain exactly what TMJ is. You should watch this video if...
• ...you have popping in your jaw • ...you can’t open your jaw all the way • ...your jaw sometimes locks in place • ...you have unexplained migraines • ...random hip pain, back pain, or ringing in your ears
If these symptoms are related to your TMJ, an orthotic can help alleviate your discomfort. The orthotic will stabilize your bite, which helps re-align your jaw to the proper position and in turn relieves your symptoms and pain.
If after watching the video you feel that you might benefit from having us realign your bite, please give me a call.
