TMJ Treatment

Dental TMJ painThe temporomandibular joint – also known as TMJ – connects the jaw to the skull, and is used when chewing, speaking and forming expressions. Occasionally, muscles can pull this joint out of alignment, causing severe pain and discomfort. Trauma, tension, grinding, arthritis and improper chewing are all causes for TMJ pain. At Yahnke Dental we can help diagnose TMJ disorders and help to strengthen the weakened muscles that are out of balance.
