Temporomandibular joint disorder can also be referred to as TMD or TMJ and is characterized by popping or clicking of the joint when the jaw opens and closes. Some signs that a person may have TMJ disorder include difficulty swallowing, chewing problems, jaw pain, tooth sensitivity, neck pain, headaches, and ear congestion. While some of these symptoms may not always manifest as a result of TMJ, if several of them happen in tandem, it may signal a larger underlying problem. At Koala Center for Sleep Disorders, our experienced and knowledgeable doctors and dental staff can provide you with the information you need to fully understand TMJ disorder and its contributing factors, so you can enjoy a happier and healthier life.
When diagnosing TMJ disorder, your doctor will perform a physical exam of the jaw bone and joint, as well as a full discussion of your symptoms. We also utilize K-7 Electromyography and Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulation (TENS), and Cone Beam Volumetric Tomography to help diagnose TMD in our patients. These high-tech diagnostic tools allow us to fully understand the severity of your condition, so we can work with you to devise a complete and individualized treatment plan designed to improve your jaw mobility and reduce tension and pain.
