• What is the temporomandibular joint?
The temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects your lower jaw to the temporal bone of your skull. Most often referred to as the TMJ, it is responsible for allowing your jaw to move comfortably and smoothly, helping you eat, chew, speak, and yawn properly. The TMJ is located on both sides of your head, directly in front of your ears. When stressed or damaged, TMJ disorder can develop.
  • What are the symptoms of TMJ disorder?

You may have TMJ disorder if you are experiencing any of these signs or symptoms:

  • How is TMJ disorder treated?

Dr. Saeed Rouhani, our practiced dentist, offers multiple treatments for TMJ disorder, based on your individual needs and the severity of your case.

Dr. Saeed Rouhani may also recommend custom-night guards to wear at night to stop your teeth from grinding and to realign your jaw to relieve stress and pressure on the TMJ.
