TMD Relief

Get a solution for TMD pain.

If you’ve been experiencing regular headaches, neck and shoulder pain, or persistent ringing in your ears, your local dentist may be able to help. These are common symptoms of temporomandibular disorder or TMD.

Complex joints called temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect your jaw to your skull. Properly aligned, these joints make it possible for us to chew, swallow, and talk. When they are out of alignment or not synchronized with your jaw, it can lead to serious, often painful, issues.

Work with one of our experienced dentists to get relief from this common but complex problem.
