TMJ

If you have symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder, or TMD, you may need to see Dr. Nidal Elias for TMJ treatment. Patients suffering from TMD often experience headaches, pain or tenderness in the face and jaw, upper shoulder pain, and neck aches. We can alleviate many of these symptoms with appropriate TMJ treatment.

Causes of TMJ Syndrome

Even though the primary cause of TMJ syndrome is unknown, experts believe that symptoms can be traced to problems in the muscles of the jaw or parts of the joint. Some of the known contributing factors to this condition include: teeth clenching, teeth grinding, trauma to the mouth, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Recognizing TMD

TMD can affect both men and women and is often seen in patients between 20 and 40 years of age. Some of the common symptoms of these problems include: frequent toothaches, upper shoulder pain, discomfort when biting, limited ability to open the mouth wide, and frequent pain or tenderness in the upper jaw. Some patients also experience dizzy spells, earaches, or have hearing problems. If you have any of these symptoms, you may need to seek professional TMJ treatment as soon as possible.
