    What is TMJ-related Jaw Pain?

    Jaw pain, also known as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain, can manifest in various ways. It often involves discomfort or pain in the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. The TMJ is a complex joint that allows for the movement of the jaw, and any issues with its function can result in pain and discomfort.  Understanding the symptoms associated with jaw pain is crucial for effective treatment.

    Symptoms can include:

    • Pain or tenderness in the jaw: Persistent pain or tenderness in the jaw joint or muscles.

    • Difficulty or discomfort while chewing: Problems with jaw movement during eating.

    • Clicking or popping sounds: Audible sounds when opening or closing the mouth.

    • Locking of the jaw: Temporary “locking” of the jaw joint, making it difficult to open or close the mouth fully.

    • Headaches and earaches: TMJ issues can contribute to headaches and ear pain.

    My treatment has been nothing short of life changing. I have struggled with TMJ issues for about 10 years and it got much worse in the last year. After treatment here, I can now chew on both sides of my mouth, open my jaw all the way, no more clicking or popping, and finally no pain or ringing ears. I was skeptical at first, but Dr. VanDkye REALLY knows what she’s talking about and all the women in the office are so helpful!

    I started with TMJ &Sleep Therapy Center in June this year. I was grinding teeth with mouth pieces made at the dentist offices that didn't help with my other issues. HEADACHES, not sleeping, jaw popping, pain in right ear, sinus issues. I was hoping only for help with headaches and sleep, and grinding. I recieved my more than ever expected. I sleep through the night, headache free, popping gone. Mouth pieces are so different than others I have had made. They truly gave me my life back. Thank you!

    The staff is wonderful, and so knowledgeable. My wife had been suffering for a long time with jaw pain, none of the medical doctors were able to help her. Finally, after treatment she has had no more pain and life is good!
