Could Your Jaw Pain Be A Symptom Of TMJ Disorder? [Quiz]

In Pain or Have Discomfort | Contemporary Dentistry & Implantology - Peabody, MA

TMJ disorder, also known as TMD, is shrouded in mystery. No one knows for sure exactly what causes it, or why women are more likely to experience it than men. Simply put, it’s a condition that affects your jaw muscles and joints, or your TMJ (temporomandibular joint). The joint may have misalignment issues, damage from an injury, or cartilage wear and tear from arthritis. Teeth grinding can even contribute to the disorder. Regardless, it causes jaw pain and tenderness that can make even simple tasks involving your jaw painful.

At Contemporary Dentistry & Implantology, we offer TMJ treatment that requires no surgery or invasive procedures. A simple night guard may be all you need to get relief.
