Clicking, popping, or pain in jaw the joint or jaw muscles is a sign that you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD). Unfortunately, these symptoms may get worse over time, leading to difficulty eating, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), arthritis, or lockjaw.
Management of TMD is usually multidisciplinary and can range from things such as medication, physiotherapy of jaw muscles, neuromodulators (Botox), splint therapy, orthodontics, or surgery. Early diagnosis and management of any TMD concerns is key to long term preservation of healthy jaw joints.
With advanced training in the management of TMD, Dr. Priya Stearns is available for consultations to discuss your options in improving the health and function of your jaw joints.
