TMJ Treatment

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder is a condition describing the pain experienced in the jaw, or in the form of headaches, caused by improper alignment between the jaw, connecting muscles, and skull. Pain and swelling in the jaw joint is the most common symptom, but sometimes the muscles’ uneven pull on the skull results in headaches.
