The opening and closing of your jaw probably isn’t something you think about very often (or at all), but it’s a pretty complex thing! The action is all centered around the temporomandibular joint, or the TMJ. When everything is right with the TMJ, you can chew, speak, smile and sing along in the car whenever the mood strikes. But when something’s wrong with either of the joints, you feel it — and pain, headaches and difficulty moving the jaw are soon to follow. Fortunately, Dr. King Scott offers TMJ therapy in West Monroe, LA. Keep reading for more on the condition and its treatment.

The best way to keep your beautiful, luminous smile is to ensure your oral health is in tip-top shape. Of course, brushing, flossing, and rinsing is a great way to keep your teeth and gums healthy after they experience pressure from chewing, bacteria build-up, and plaque formation. With tartar, decay, loose food particles, and other factors, gum disease and tooth decay is always around the corner. The immaculate general dentistry from the office of L. King Scott, DDS can guarantee pristine oral hygiene and prevent oral health problems.
