Have you heard of TMJ disorder? This is a disorder having to do with the joints connecting your jaw to your skull. It is also referred to as TMD, or temporomandibular disorder.


Symptoms of TMJ disorder may include:


– A locked jaw that makes it difficult to open or close your mouth

– Pain and tenderness in your jaw

– Problems chewing

– Consistent pain around your ears


If you deal with any of these symptoms consistently, you may need to be seen for TMD/TMJ disorder. Call Craniofacial Pain Center Of Colorado in Arvada, Colorado to discuss your treatment options.


The exact cause of TMJ disorder can be difficult to figure out. However, your dentist, Dr. James Bieneman, can discuss possible causes and personalized solutions for your particular case. TMD is sometimes connected to bruxism, or chronic grinding of teeth (typically while sleeping). As each case of TMJ disorder is very personalized, it is important that you see your dentist as soon as possible.
