If you endure headaches, neck pain, jaw popping, or tingling in your extremities, you may be one of the millions of Americans who suffer from TMJ dysfunction. This condition is caused by misalignment of the temporomandibular joints, the ball and socket joints that allow your jaw to open and close. When your jaw joints are improperly aligned, the nerves become inflamed, and this irritation causes a variety of painful symptoms.
Dr. Salami will thoroughly assess your condition and determine the best treatment to alleviate your discomfort. Non-surgical TMJ therapy may include jaw exercises, hot and cold compresses, or over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicines, or a custom-fit oral appliance to help reposition the jaw joints and alleviate teeth grinding. Don’t live with TMJ pain any longer.
