TMJ or TMD: Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction


Ease Your Jaw Pain Today!

If you experience pain when speaking, chewing, or making facial expressions, you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD).

TMD is characterized by pain when your jawbone and skull are out of alignment, called malocclusion. TMD is a chronic, degenerative disease and it’s important to seek treatment before symptoms worsen. Daytime sleepiness, facial and jaw pain and clenching or grinding your teeth are common symptoms of TMD, but other symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Lockjaw or limited mobility of jaw
  • Clicking and popping of the joint
  • Forward head posture
  • Head and neck muscle pain or spasm
  • Ringing in the ears

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to seek treatment. Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb has the experience in the treatment of TMD that has helped her patients throughout central New Jersey alleviate facial and jaw pain once and for all.
