Treatment requires going beyond your oral health physician
TMJD (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction) is a collective term for a broad range of disorders with symptoms including:
- Radiating pain in the face, neck, or shoulders
- Limited movement or locking of the jaw
- Painful clicking or grating when opening or closing the mouth
- Significant change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together
- Headaches, earaches, dizziness, hearing problems, and difficulty swallowing
Typically, because the pain is located around the face and mouth, most people look to their oral health physician for help.
But, it is often not enough.
How we can help
The position of the head and neck are intricately connected. In fact, the Journal of Oral Rehabilitation recommends examination of the cervical spine in patients, even without cervical complaints, because Cervical Spine disorders can be factors in TMJD. Chiropractic treatment of TMJD, including therapeutic exercises and improved posture, can alleviate symptoms by correcting misalignments in the spine and re-positioning the jaw so that care received from your oral health physician has greater and lasting results.
Dr. George C. Win, DC, has completed extensive post-graduate training for the treatment of TMJD, offering his TMJD patients lasting pain relief and correction of their problem. He is trained to examine your neck and jaw to determine the best course of co-managed care with your oral health physician.
