Treat TMJ Disorder at Our Laval Dental Clinic
It is estimated that 10% of the population suffers from pain caused by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). Many people who suffer from it do not realize it.
What Is the Temporomandibular Joint?
The TMJ, short for temporomandibular joint, is the joint that joins the mandible (the lower jaw) to the bone of the skull. We have two TMJs located in front of the ears on either side of our face.
What is a TMJ disorder?
A TMJ disorder can cause a displacement of the muscles and nerves of your jaw and cause dysfunction in the temporomandibular joint. This problem is typically characterized by these main symptoms:
- Ringing in the ears
- Abnormally worn teeth (or teeth grinding)
- Face Pain
- Neck or shoulder pain
