Treating Painful TMJ Symptoms

The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, connects your jawbone to the rest of your skull. When there’s a problem with this connection and you don’t seek treatment, the symptoms can be uncomfortable. If you have painful TMJ symptoms and haven’t yet gone to your dentist, read on to see what treatment options you can look forward to.

TMJ and TMD both refer to a disorder that occurs when your temporomandibular joint causes you pain. Sometimes it happens when you’re chewing your food or speaking, but in other cases it causes an ongoing pain regardless of what you’re doing. Your dentist may suggest a jaw alignment treatment to prevent migraines, and this should also help with teeth grinding, which should further reduce your symptoms. If your jaw pops, clicks, or hurts when you open and close your mouth, or if you experience headaches, talk to your dentist about TMJ treatment.

TMJ symptoms can affect your quality of life, so don’t wait to see your dentist serving Manhattan for a dental checkup. Dr. Michael J. Wei is one of the best in the business, and you can visit our team’s website or call the office at (212) 982-4080 to set up an appointment.
