TMJ Disorder: Do I Have It Or Not?

When you aren’t having very nice sensations coming from your jaw joint area, you may hear from a friend that your problem is probably TMJ disorder (TMD). This may delight you, as it’s always nice to put a name to something that’s confusing you. This may also be something that causes you some unease. What’s TMD all about? How do you know if it’s actually affecting you or if it’s really something else? Should you try to investigate or treat it on your own? There’s no reason to feel worried. There’s an easy way to receive a diagnosis and there are many treatment options, should you need them. Bring our advice on board!

Check With Us Only!

Our first and primary suggestion for you when you are ready to find out whether you’re dealing with TMJ disorder? Call us and check in with our team. All it takes is a quick phone call, the scheduling of a consultation that will work for you, and then coming in! We will take care of the rest, as we ask you questions, examine your smile, and determine whether you need treatment, what types of changes can help, and exactly what’s going on with those TMJs.

Don’t Check Online

When you look online, you will see a lot of information that is right on! However, you will also see a lot of information that is way off the mark. You may become convinced that you certainly do suffer from TMJ disorder. You may also read things about treatment that please you (that may or may not be true), that scare you (that are not true, there’s nothing scary about treating this issue!), and more. Don’t go down this rabbit hole! Instead, let us diagnose you.
