TMJ Dysfunction is a painful condition of the jaw, head, and neck area. It can seem to come out of nowhere and totally disrupt your life. Fortunately there are non-invasive treatments available at Sleep Apnea & TMJ Solutions in Brentwood and Murfreesboro TN.
TMJ is short for temporomandibular joint. You’ve got two of them, and they connect the lower jaw to the skull. TMJ Dysfunction, or TMD, is characterized by pain or tenderness in the jaw area, including facial muscles. It may be accompanied by headaches and throat pain, too.
Non Invasive Treatment
TMD is surprisingly common. By one estimate there are ten million Americans coping with the condition.
The cause of TMD can be hard to pin down, but it usually responds to any of several non-invasive therapies. Surgery for TMD is rare: less than one percent of all cases.
Possible solutions include:
- Bite adjustment
- Oral appliance therapy
