TMJ, The Great Imposter

We have many patients that arrive at our clinic suffering from pain for years and years. It is very common to hear “how come nobody told me about this sooner?” And the answer is because TMJ dysfunction mimics many other illnesses and can easily be confused with such diagnoses as migraines, anxiety, depression, arthritis, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

TMJ is hard to diagnose because it involves the teeth, jaw and muscles. These three things work together and must compliment each other for proper function of the TM joint. If any one of these parts is “weak or broken” there will be dysfunction in the TM joint. This can cause many of the symptoms listed below.

At the TMJ Center we provide objective measurement that can properly diagnose and treat TMJ disease. We use state of the art neuromuscular instrumentation that has been approved by the FDA and ADA for TMJ diagnosis and treatment.

It is our number one goal to provide each patient with a functional existence that is pain and symptom free from TMJ dysfunction.
