TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint, and this condition affects a countless number of people across the United States. This condition causes tightness and discomfort in the jaw and is a common complaint among dental patients. The temporomandibular joints join the lower jaw to the skull in front of the ears. You can feel these joints by placing your fingers close to your ears on the side of the face and opening and closing your mouth. Issues associated with TMJ syndrome include morning headaches, a clicking sound on one or both sides of the mouth while eating, a jaw that is difficult to open or locked in position, facial and ear pain. At Family & Cosmetic Dental Care in Johns Creek, Dr. Mitul Patel will conduct a thorough exam to diagnose TMJ syndrome and determine the underlying cause of the condition.
