Trade Your Jaw Pain for Comfortable, Effective TMJ Care

Is TMJ Pain Keeping You From Enjoying Life?

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) is a common, often painful condition affecting the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) on each side of the face. Its symptoms range from mild to severe and even excruciating, and are debilitating for many people. TMD frequently is the reason behind time away from work or school, missed life events and comfortable, daily living. Let Dr. Michael Scherb help you take back your life, and overcome jaw pain and other agonizing symptoms with effective TMJ solutions.

Signs Your TMJ Health Is at Risk

Any signs or symptoms of TMD should be evaluated by an experienced dentist, and include:
  • Jaw pain radiating to face, head or neck areas
  • Earaches or ringing in ear
  • Chronic headaches or migraines
  • Grinding, popping or clicking noises upon opening/closing
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding or clenching)
  • Uneven tooth (chewing) surfaces
  • Jaw locking in open/closed position
  • Difficulty opening wide or eating
  • Tired feeling in jaw

Bruxism: A Common Cause for TMD

The habit of teeth grinding and/or clenching (bruxism) is a major contributor to TMJ problems for many patients. The force created when the teeth rub or clench together not only places stress on the jaw joints and surrounding muscles, over time it alters how the upper and lower teeth fit together. Dr. Scherb can perform a simple occlusal adjustment procedure to remove uneven chewing surfaces, restoring balance and harmony to the bite and jaw joints.
