TMJ/TMD Treatment in

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD) are more common than you may think. Most of us have experienced at least mild jaw pain at some point. When jaw pain persists or becomes severe, it may require general dental treatment.

TMJ/TMD Treatment in Chester

Your first thought would probably be to visit your doctor. However, in many cases, your dentist is probably a better call. A number of disorders of the jaw are rooted in the function of the mouth, which is an area normally treated by an orthodontist or dentist.

If the muscles of the jaw are in some way compromised or weakened, it will have an impact on the function of the jaw. The sufferer may experience stiffness, pain or discomfort as a result of the stress being placed on the joint. For some sufferers, these symptoms are experienced regardless of whether the jaw is at rest or moving due to activities such as speaking or eating.
