Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located just in front of your ears and acts as a hinge for your jaw bone allowing you to talk, chew, and bite. If you’ve started experiencing pain in your jaw, it may be an indication you are dealing with a TMJ disorder. You might be experiencing other symptoms such as:

  • Clicking or popping noises when you open your mouth wide or chew
  • Difficulties opening your mouth wide
  • Headaches or earaches
  • Muscle pain in your neck or shoulder area
  • Sensitive teeth due to grinding your teeth

We’re sharing a video made by Colgate® that discusses some of the reasons you might be experiencing a TMJ disorder. Whatever the cause, we can help you with our TMJ treatment. One of the ways is with an oral appliance that stops the damage of teeth grinding!
