Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome (TMJ) is a common condition affecting a wide variety of people. TMJ can be characterized by severe headaches, jaw pain of varying degrees, grinding teeth, or an intermittent ringing in the ears. The vast majority of TMJ sufferers are unaware that the root cause of these problems is something that your Oral Surgeon can effectively treat.

Your Oral Surgeon is able to test, diagnose, and devise an immediate plan to treat the underlying causes of the TMJ disorder. There are various treatment options that we can provide to improve your symptoms.
