Do you suffer from chronic jaw pain? You may have Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder. The temporomandibular joints are connectors located on each side of your head and allow your jaw to move with flexibility. When complications with these joints arise, symptoms can extend to the jaw, face, and neck. Symptoms can include pain or discomfort when biting down, toothaches, headaches, jaw pain, facial swelling and inflammation, difficulty chewing, jaw locks in an open or closed position, clicking or popping noises when your jaw is opening or closing, dizziness, earaches, and ringing in your ears.
Dr. Shlafer uses advanced technology to diagnose TMJ disorders and provides a variety of TMJ treatments (including mouth guards and occlusal equilibration).
