If you experience chronic facial pain, neck pain, or recurring headaches, you may be suffering from Temporomandibular Disorder, or TMD. Your temporomandibular joints connect your lower jawbone to your skull and are used every time you speak, chew, swallow, and yawn. Because they are used with such frequency, TMD symptoms can range from unpleasant to downright debilitating. Other symptoms include:
- Jaw pain
- Facial swelling
- Pain or ringing in the ears
- Limited range of jaw movement
- Clicking or popping when you move your jaw
If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, call Family Dental Choice to make an appointment. Dr. Hahn can develop a treatment plan that not only eases your discomfort, but prevents further TMJ problems, as well.
