TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint. That is the joint between your jaw and skull. Many people suffer from headaches, joint pain, loose, fractured or sensitive teeth. All of these symptoms can be related to a bad bite (malocclusion) and TMJ Disease. Dr. Mermelstein is a TMJ expert. Extensive knowledge of the bite and joint condition is necessary to properly restore a healthy condition. If smile restorations, crown, bridge or implants are going to be comfortable and last, the restorations have to be done in concert with a proper bite.
If you suffer from any of the following, you may have a TMJ condition:
- Pain in face
- Ear pain
- Clicking or grinding in jaw joint
- Upper back pain
- Neck pain
- Difficulty chewing
