The temporomandibular joint or “TMJ” is a joint that connects your jawbone to your skull and acts like a sliding hinge. One of the most intricate joints in the body, it controls jaw movement, rotation and more. When people are overstressed or have a bad habit of grinding their teeth they can cause pain to this joint.
Being such an intricate and delicate joint, it can create many other issues that we try to prevent. At Family Dental Care of Geneseo we will assist your recovery by offering night guards, bite guards and bite adjustments.
If you believe you are experiencing any TMJ problems or symptoms and you live in or around Geneseo, please let us know. Our team will be happy to evaluate your situation and offer the best treatment possible.
