TMJ is short for Temporomandibular Joint. The TMJ is the part of the jaw that allows you to chew. It can become stressed or damaged for a number of reasons, including trauma, nighttime grinding and malalignment of your teeth. This can lead to intense pain, difficulty in chewing, and headaches.
Nova Dental can provide a diagnosis on whether TMJ disorder is responsible for your jaw pain. We also provide treatments so you no longer have to suffer from chronic pain.
