Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) is an umbrella term that describes a number of complex problems that can affect the jaws, jaw muscles, jaw joint (TMJ), and nerves in the head and neck. Management of these disorders can be difficult; however, the first step is determining an accurate diagnosis of the problem. The diagnosis process begins with a specialized examination conducted by your dentist where we review your medical history, the history and progression of your problem, as well as a clinical examination of the head and neck. Based on the diagnosis, a treatment plan will be formulated to address the specific problem. As we know, “all people are different” and a treatment that works for one person does not necessarily work for another. It is our job to take you through the process of what works best and how we best rid you of your pain.
