    Understanding TMJ Facial Pain

    At TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Montana,  we specialize in providing effective solutions for TMJ pain. Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) pain can be a debilitating condition affecting the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement.  Our dedicated team is here to help you understand TMJ pain and provide personalized services to alleviate your discomfort.


    TMJ pain refers to discomfort or pain in the jaw joint and the muscles surrounding it. This condition can result from various factors, including stress, teeth grinding, misaligned jaw, arthritis, or injury to the jaw.


    • Jaw Pain: Persistent discomfort or pain in the jaw joint.
    • Headaches: Recurrent headaches, especially around the temples.
    • Ear Pain: Pain or aching sensation in the ears.
    • Clicking or Popping Sounds: Audible sounds when opening or closing the mouth.
    • Difficulty Chewing: Discomfort or difficulty while chewing food.

    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!
