I have seen so many patients that come to me suffering from TMJ disorder. Sometimes the first time we discuss it is when they open their mouths for an exam and a sound like a shot rings out through the office – their jaw popping! Other times they happen to mention that they have been dealing with chronic headaches and don’t know what to do anymore.
So many people don’t realize that they can get help from a dentist rather than just keep suffering. I am so elated when I can help patients find relief from TMJ disease and get them back to living life fully and without pain. And the really exciting part is that we can generally do it quickly and non-invasively. Sometimes patients feel relief from pain almost instantly.
