TMD Treatment


TMD Treatment

The many causes of TMD, also known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction, can make it a difficult condition to diagnose. However, Dr. Prabha Raju has over 25 years of experience and can provide effective, applicable and high-quality TMJ treatment in Burton, Michigan.

As the joint that connects the lower jaw to the rest of the head, the temporomandibular joint can directly affect one’s ability to eat, chew and speak with comfort and efficiency. TMD is the acronym for temporomandibular joint dysfunction, which can refer to the jaw joint being stressed, injured or misaligned. This can happen as the result of stress, bruxism, TMJ arthritis, trauma or other injury to the head, neck or jaw.

If you suffer from frequent jaw or facial pain or often have a sore jaw, you may have TMD. TMJ disorders can also cause the following conditions:

  • Grinding, clicking or popping noises when opening or closing the mouth
  • Limited mobility to open the mouth when speaking, chewing or yawning
  • A locked jaw
  • Chewing or biting becomes painful
  • Pain or discomfort in the neck, shoulders or ears
  • And more!
