Your temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is the complex sliding hinge joint that connects your jawbone to your skull. While this joint is typically extremely useful for eating, speaking, and more, sometimes it does malfunction.
1 in every 8 people are currently affected by TMJ and you might be one of them. If you think you may be suffering from TMJ, it’s essential to seek treatment. When left untreated, this bite disorder can impact your oral health and quality of life. Luckily, you can put a stop to this grinding, and all the side effects that come with it, with TMJ treatments at Gassler Dental.
