TMJ Treatment - Canton, MA
TMJ Therapy Can Ease Your Jaw Pain and Align Your Bite
What is TMJ Disorder?
Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the tissue and muscle that connects your jaw to your skull on the sides of your face. These muscles control movement of the jaw, but when inflamed or damaged, jaw pain, soreness or stiffness can occur. When you have trouble or discomfort using your jaw normally due to this joint, the condition is called temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) or TMJ disorder. If left untreated, TMJ disorder can cause patients frequent migraines, difficulty eating or chewing, jaw and facial soreness, and even cause the jaw to become locked in an open or closed position. At Canton Dental Group, we have a trained TMJ specialist in-house to provide exceptional care for your jaw and joint. We will be able to diagnose your jaw pain and provide effective treatment for TMJ disorder.
