The Temporomandibular Joint is a big word for your jaw joint. It seems pretty simple, but this joint is associated with a host of problems — like jaw, neck, and shoulder pain, clicking when you open your mouth, chew, or yawn, and the feeling that your teeth aren’t in the right place when you bite.

TMJ problems can be caused by tooth clenching or grinding, growth and development problems, or trauma.

We provide TMJ Treatment to the San Diego community by prescribing medications for acute pain, creating a splint that you can use to relax the jaw muscles, or by making small adjustments to how your teeth come together when you bite.
