What Is TMJ Disorder?

Many residents of Alpharetta have TMJ disorder, or temporomandibular joint disorder. Your temporomandibular joints are the jaw joints that let you open and close your mouth. If you have TMJ, you’ll likely have symptoms like jaw pain, difficulty opening your mouth, worsening pain when chewing, and ear pain. TMJ isn’t pleasant, but there are treatment options available for your jaw pain.

You can learn about your TMJ treatment options by watching this video and consulting your dentist. Often, a dental nightguard is necessary to protect your teeth from damage while you sleep. If malocclusion is a factor, it might be time to consider orthodontic treatment to align your jaws properly. And since stress is a common cause of TMJ pain, consider practicing stress management techniques like mindfulness and meditation.
