TMJ & Jaw Disorder Therapy
Although it technically refers to the temporomandibular joint, the acronym " TMJ" is often used to refer to disorders with the jaw joint. TMJ disorders, also called TMD, can be caused by teeth grinding, jaw clenching, external trauma, disease, poor posture, high stress levels, and wear due to aging. Dr. Hoffmann has completed extensive training to help TMJ syndrome patients in Milwaukee at his Brookfield office.
Some of the symptoms of TMJ disorders (TMD) include:
- Jaw pain
- Earaches/ringing in the ears
- Worn teeth
- Facial muscle pain
- Popping/clicking sounds in the jaw
- Inability to fully open or close the mouth
Dr. Edward Hoffmann discusses TMJ problems with Milwaukee patients suffering from jaw pain. He conducts a thorough examination of patients' muscles, teeth, and jaw structure. He will then determine the best course of TMJ disorder treatment. Common TMJ solutions include night mouth guards or other kinds of therapeutic orthodontics.
If you are suffering from pain in your face, neck, or jaw that you believe may be related to TMJ, please contact the Brookfield office of Dr. Edward Hoffmann today. You could be on your way to a pain-free life sooner than you think.
