Woman with Jaw Pain

Is jaw pain interfering with your life?

Talking is painful. Smiling is painful. Chewing is painful. Yawning is painful. These are all symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder. TMD can make everyday functions seem like daunting tasks.

We have had patients who complain of neck and shoulder pain that gets 50% better after just one laser treatment for the TMJ joint with no treatment to the areas that were hurting. Now we are getting at the primary problem!Dr. Marcus

Did you know?

Millions of American adults suffer from chronic facial pain, such as jaw pain, headaches or earaches. The source of these aches and pains may be related to one or both of the temporomandibular (TM) joints.

TMJ vs. TMD

TMJ stands for the temporomandibular joint, which connects the lower to the upper jaw. When the TMJ becomes misaligned or inflamed, it is considered a disorder of the TMJ, or TMD. As simple as these acronyms may be, a temporomandibular joint disorder can be quite complicated. The symptoms include:

  • Headache and ear ache
  • Neck ache and shoulder ache
  • Tender or swollen face
  • Jaw popping or clicking
  • Pain while chewing, speaking, yawning, swallowing, even smiling

While women between the ages of 20 and 40 are at the highest risk for TMD, it can affect anyone at any age.
