TMJ Therapy Relieves West Monroe Jaw Pain

man holding face in painWhat is TMJ? TMJ stands for temporomandibular joints, the small joints that hold your jaw to your skull. Proper function or your mouth and surrounding nerves and muscles are dependent upon correct alignment of the TMJ joints. Even slight misalignment can lead to a host of agonizing or debilitating symptoms, including:

  • Popping or clicking jaw joints
  • Inability to fully open and close the mouth
  • Pain in the neck, head, face, shoulders, and lower back
  • Teeth grinding (bruxism) and damage
  • Chronic earaches
  • Migraines or headaches
  • Tingling extremities
  • Jaw pain and discomfort when chewing

If you experience and of these symptoms, Dr. Scott would like to examine your jaws for signs of TMJ disorder (TMD). This condition can be caused by stress, heredity, habits, or injury. In some cases, Dr. Scott can prescribe a custom mouth appliance to correct the TMD. He studied TMD therapy and bruxism at The Dawson Academy and under Dr. Mark Piper. For many years, Dr. Scott has helped patients reclaim quality of life and comfortable oral function through minimally-invasive TMJ splint therapy. Don’t live with the pain. Call for your TMD consultation with Dr. Scott today.
