TMJ is a serious condition that can be painful and difficult to deal with. Individuals with TMJ report experiencing a range of symptoms including headaches, dizziness, and pain in the face or mouth. If you or someone you know is suffering from the health effects of TMJ, we may be able to help. Although we are based in Sheboygan, our dental office frequently sees patients from Manitowoc and other nearby cities for TMJ diagnosis and treatment.
Temporomandibular joint disorder is a condition caused by injury or damage to the muscles that connect your jaw to your skull. There are a variety of causes that can lead to TMJ syndrome but perhaps the most common cause is a “bad bite”. If your upper and lower teeth are misaligned or do not come together in the right way, the muscles and joints in your jaw can be negatively affected. Other common causes of TMJ include dental injury, teeth grinding, stress, arthritis, and poor posture.
TMJ is a complex condition that requires specialized care and treatment. If a regular doctor, chiropractor, or dentist believes their patient needs TMJ treatment, oftentimes they will refer them to another physician that specializes in TMJ disorders such as our dental office. We provide TMJ health care to patients of all ages from Manitowoc. When you visit our office, we will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that works with your lifestyle and needs. Our number one goal is to help you regain control of your dental health.
