TMJ Treatment

San Jose Dentist TMJ Treatment
TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) is the joint that connects the lower and upper jaw. It is one of the most complex joints in the entire body, capable of forward and backward movement, rotations, and side-to-side movements. TMJ often refers to complications and problems with this joint. Some of the most common symptoms of TMJ problems are:

  • Pain
  • Limited movement of the lower jaw
  • Clicking sounds
  • Muscle spasms
  • Locking of the jaw

Some potential causes of the disease include genetics, hormones, low-level infections, auto-immune diseases, trauma, and clenching or grinding of the teeth. With over 5 years of successful TMJ treatments, Dr. Mangat is highly experienced in the diagnosis and evaluation of such conditions. Some common treatments are Night Guards, Bite Guards, and Bite Adjustments.
