TMJ/TMD is a term used to describe a group of symptoms that occur as a result of problems with the muscles and jaws in the face, specifically the temporomandibular joints. When these joints becomes damaged or injured, they cease to work properly and can cause an array of adverse effects. Some common symptoms of TMJ include teeth grinding, jaw pain, headaches, and earaches. The individual may also hear clicking or popping sounds when they open their mouth. TMJ can be painful and, in many cases, difficult to cope with.
We provide TMJ treatment to patients in Mequon of all ages including children, teenagers, adults, and seniors. Our office is located only a short drive away in the city of Sheboygan.

There are a variety of causes which can contribute to the development of TMJ, though the most common is a “bad bite”. If your upper and lower teeth do not align properly within your mouth, they may not provide the proper support for your jaw against your skull. A bad bite can result from having missing, crooked, or worn down teeth. Having an unstable bite can cause painful muscle spasms and jaw joint displacement.
