TMJ Disorders

TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have had symptoms of pain or a “clicking” sound, you’ll be glad to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. These symptoms occur when the joints of the jaw and the chewing muscles (muscles of mastication) do not work together correctly. No one treatment can resolve TMJ disorders completely and treatment takes time to become effective. Dr. Wittenberg can help you have a healthier and more comfortable jaw.

There are various treatment options that Dr. Wittenberg can recommend to improve the harmony and Dr. Wittenberg will work with your doctor to determine the proper course of treatment. It is important to note that treatment always works best with a team approach of self-care joined with professional care.
