What do I do if I have TMJ symptoms?

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD or TMJ) has many associated symptoms, and each person may experience them differently. The most common signs of this disorder include: 

  • Jaw and neck pain
  • Facial soreness
  • Difficulty chewing food 
  • Popping and clicking of the jaw
  • Chronic migraines

If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist in Los Gatos, CA can help you get long-lasting relief. 

Oral Health Risks Associated with TMJ

In addition to causing toothaches and sensitivity, untreated TMJ can also cause eventual tooth enamel deterioration, tooth loss, or gum recession. Teeth grinding associated with TMJ also wears down the teeth, making them more susceptible to deep decay and nerve damage. 

The pain and discomfort associated with TMD can become unbearable for some patients, which is why we offer gentle TMJ treatment in our Los Gatos, CA dental office.
