You can still live a happy and healthy life with TMJ.

If you’re one of the approximately 12 percent of Americans living with some level of TMJ, knowing how to recognize your individual symptoms and triggers is vital to managing your condition. Having a highly qualified, knowledgeable and trained team supporting you will enable you to live a happy and healthy life with TMJ. At the TMJ Treatment Center, we take the guess work out of identifying your symptoms and triggers and help you reduce the stress of the unknown.

For those suffering from TMJ, typical symptoms can include, headaches that range from minor to debilitating, facial pain around the eyes and ears, and neck and upper-back pain and muscle spasms. These symptoms can severely impact your mood, productivity, plans and your daily life.

Knowing your individual TMJ triggers can help you lessen the impact by planning around or avoiding them altogether. Stress is a major trigger for many people, while others may feel their pain after a dental procedure. Still others find that their triggers are hard, sticky or chewy foods.
