Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Conditions

TMJThe temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint of the jaw, located directly in front of the ears.

Like any other joint in the human body, it can become inflamed, resulting in significant discomfort in the ear, jaw, neck, head, or over the joint itself.

It is often caused by chronic chewing, teeth grinding, changes in dental bite, a broken and/or repaired jaw, but sometimes can be caused by nothing at all.

Our ENT physicians perform a detailed evaluation to identify and treat TMJ disorders.
