Temporal Mandibular Joint dysfunction (TMJ or TMD) refers to the joint where your lower jaw meets your upper jaw. Under normal conditions, these bones are aligned and have plenty of cartilage so the joint moves with a smooth gliding motion. However, stress or an improper bite can cause these joints to dysfunction, exposing nerve endings to create pain. These joints are highly sensitive. A little stress, extra fatigue, and change in bite and you may temporarily offset the whole jaw system. The resulting TMJ disorder can create mild to severe symptoms, with everything from jaw clicking to minor discomfort to sharp pain in your temples, ears, neck or shoulders. It commonly also is a cause of migraine headaches.

At Dr. Kathy Huber's office we can help alleviate your discomfort through fabricating a bite appliance that lessens the pressure on your jaw joints.
