Do you suffer from chronic pain in your jaw and face or experience “popping” sounds when you chew and talk? Perhaps you have more debilitating symptoms such as headaches or lockjaw. If so, the problem may be TMJ. This condition affects more than ten million people in the U.S. alone and is more than just painful — over time, it can cause serious damage to your jaws and teeth.
TMJ Dysfunction is a popular term to describe a disorder of the jaw joints or the muscles that control them. Symptoms often masquerade as other problems such as sinus headaches, migraines, neck and shoulder stiffness, or earaches.
Dr. Handel can accurately pinpoint the source of your pain and provide relief using the very latest in gentle, non-surgical treatments.
