What is TMJ Disorder?

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder, affecting the joint connecting the lower jaw to the skull, can lead to various symptoms and discomfort. Responsible for enabling the jaw’s range of motion, the TMJ can cause facial pain, headaches, and difficulties with chewing and mouth opening when its movement is impaired. Symptoms may include jaw pain, facial muscle spasms, and a tendency to chew on one side. TMJ Disorder can also manifest as locking of the jaw, jaw misalignment, and auditory symptoms like ringing in the ear or clicking noises when moving the jaw. At Mountainview Health & Wellness, we offer personalized treatments to alleviate TMJ-related issues and improve overall jaw function and comfort.
