TMJ treatment addresses a variety of painful conditions of the head and neck. It was originally derived from “temporaromandibular joint”, your jaw joints – once thought to be the source of most of these ailments.
Today, we know there are many causes of head and neck problems that may or may not be related to the temporomandibular joint. For this reason, although not as widely familiar, most dentists use “TMD” (for temporomandibular disorders) to more accurately describe the condition.
You may normally think of a number of the symptoms of TMD as being medical conditions, unrelated to dentistry, but Dr Wells can help explain what they are, why treating them might involve the expertise of a specially trained Neuromuscular Dentist and how such a dentist would diagnose and treat these conditions.
