A common problem that is easily treated.
The temporal mandibular joint, or TMJ, refers to your jaw joint. TMJ bite disorders are usually muscular in nature and are caused by grinding or misaligned teeth. Most are treated with mouth guards that are custom-made to protect your teeth and jaw muscles. Some TMJ disorders are related to bone changes in the joint, which could require surgical treatment.
Because TMJ disorders are so common, Dr. Becker received training in TMJ disorders at the Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, FL, a highly regarded continuing education institute that specializes in TMJ and bite disorders.
We look forward to keeping your jaw joint healthy for a lifetime!
