Spring Hill TMJ Treatment
TMJ Disorders & Facial Pain
The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, connects the lower jaw to the temporal bone at the side of the head. It acts similarly to a sliding hinge, and there is one joint on either side of your jaw. If there is any type of problem with this joint, a person may experience significant pain and discomfort. It is common for a person with a TMJ disorder to experience a clicking or popping sound when they open or close their mouth. Additionally, it is common for people to suffer from headaches or migraines, congestion, and even facial pain. Few realize that TMJ disorders and these symptoms are closely associated.
If you think you may be suffering from a TMJ disorder, Dr. Robinette and our team at Dentistry by Design in Spring Hill are here to help. We will take the time to listen to your description of your symptoms and can conduct an examination to assess the condition of your jaw and teeth. By offering an honest evaluation and reviewing treatment options with you, our goal is to guide you to the right solution.
