Have you noticed grinding or clicking sounds when you open and close your jaw? Do you experience frequent headaches, or pain in your neck, shoulders, or ears? If so, you may be experiencing a TMJ disorder.

Your TMJ is the temporomandibular joint that connects the lower jaw to your skull and allows you to speak and chew your food. When the TMJ becomes damaged or is knocked out of alignment, it can cause you all kinds of discomfort and trouble, such as:

  • Pain when chewing and biting
  • Grinding, popping, or clicking sounds when you open your mouth
  • Frequent headaches
  • Pain in your ears, neck, and shoulders
  • A locked or stuck jaw
  • TMJ disorders can develop from stress, bruxism, arthritis, or trauma to the head, neck, or jaw. During a consultation Dr. Goggins or Dr. Aguirre, we will help you determine the cause of your discomfort so that we can recommend the best possible treatment. Denver Restorative Dentistry offers a wide range of TMJ treatments, including oral appliances, massage techniques, prescription medication, jaw surgery, and full mouth reconstruction.
