Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorders
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders usually present as pain in the jaw joint which often radiates to the ears plus muscle pain and a limited ability to open the mouth. Chronic headaches and neck pain are common symptoms of TMJ.
Carolinas Center For TMJ Therapy is the Charlotte area’s only AAAHC board-certified practice that offers comprehensive care regarding comprehensive facial and jaw pain.
Our TMJ specialists have decades of experience in TMJ therapy and can help create a personalized action plan for your treatment. Most often, a splint will alleviate the symptoms of TMJ, and our conservative treatment options are often enough to mitigate the pain.
For those with severe TMJ issues, we offer the most comprehensive suite of surgical and non-surgical options for treatment, backed by nationally-recognized, board-certified & fellow-trained oral surgeons in 5 offices around Charlotte, North Carolina.
Often, TMJ can often affect a person’s ability to swallow, speak, eat, chew, breathe and overall quality of life. People with chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, sleep disorders, irritable bowel syndrome and other conditions often have TMJ disorders as well.
