What is TMJ?
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located in the back of the jaw and acts as a hinge which "connects" your jawbone to your skull. TMJ disorders can cause increasing pain in your jaw joints and the muscles which control your jaw movements. Severe headaches, changes in your bite, and limited opening of your mouth may also result from untreated TMJ problems. At Reflections Med Spa in Milton, working together with the periodontal offices of Drs.Fugazzotto, Rost & Brodsky when necessary, we utilize neurotoxins (Xeomin and Botox), and bite appliances and bite adjustments as needed, to treat TMJ and muscle pain management. Let us help you experience the relief you need and want!
While TMJ disorders are often difficult to identify, you should look for the following signs and symptoms:
- Pain and tenderness in the jaw
- Difficulty chewing
- Pain when chewing
- Pain in one or both joints
- Pain in and around the ear
- Facial pain
- Locking of the joint
