Could Your Jaw Problems Be Due to TMJ Issues?

TMJ Treatment 2 at Douglas A. Callow, DDS Office in Plymouth, MI

If you’re having “mystery” jaw problems, pain or sensitivity while chewing, headaches, ringing in the ears, or even unexplained swelling in your face or jaw, you may be experiencing problems with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). That’s the “hinge” that connects the jaw to your head, and you have one on each side. 

The causes of  TMJ Disorder  vary, but chronic teeth grinding can often play a role.

Dr. Doug Callow at Callow Family Dentistry will examine your mouth and jaw to determine whether the problem is TMJ Disorder. If so, the treatment may be as simple as a custom mouthguard to relieve stress on the joint and prevent teeth grinding while you sleep.
