Temporomandibular Disorder (TMJ/TMD)
Millions of Americans suffer from chronic facial and neck pain as well as recurrent headaches. In some cases this pain is due to Temporomandibular Disorder, or TMD.
Your temporomandibular joints, or jaw joints, connect your lower jaw to your skull. As you may imagine, these joints get quite a lot of use throughout the day as you speak, chew, swallow, and yawn. Pain in and around these joints can be very unpleasant and may even restrict movement of the lower jaw.
Should you notice any of these symptoms, let us know! We can help advise you as to whether they indicate the presence of TMD, and what sort of treatment is appropriate for you.
We have extensive training in the treatment of TMD symptoms. Dr. Leonard has over 30 years of experience and hundreds of satisfied patients whose TMD symptoms have been relieved in our practice.
