What is

TMJ?

TMJ, or TMD, stands for Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction. TMJ is used to describe issues in the joints where your head and jaw meet. TMJ is very common and is a common cause of headaches, ear aches, and jaw aches. You may also experience pain while chewing and locking or clicking jaws. 

Treating TMJ

If you think you may have TMJ, come see us at Platinum Dental and we will help you figure out the best way to ease the pain that comes with TMJ. We will help you learn the best relaxation and massage techniques to help eliminate discomfort. Sometimes a mouth guard is needed to prevent grinding or clenching, and we can help pick the right one for your mouth. We can also help you find the right anti-inflammatory medication to decrease pressure on your mouth joints.
