What is TMJ you ask?

Temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD/TMJ, is a condition that affects a person’s jaw joint. This temporomandibular joint is a very important component in the mouth – it is responsible for all functions of the jaw, including chewing, eating, and speaking.

Learn how your bite affects your body

When the upper and lower jaws do not align properly, the bite is said to be uneven. An uneven bite can create all kinds of problems and is associated with jaw pain, headaches, tooth loss, and even speech problems.

The good news is that there are neuromuscular dentists who focus on treating TMJ specifically. Dr. Mike Deldar and Dr. Sara Deldar have been assisting Indiana patients affected by TMJ for many years. The neuromuscular dentistry team at Deldar Dental uses diagnostic testing and advanced treatment methods to help people get a balanced bite.

How TMJ is evaluated

A bad bite affects patients differently, depending on the problem and the person’s current health status. Left untreated, these side effects can lead to a myriad of additional problems. People who are dealing with TMJ should seek treatment from a skilled neuromuscular dentist to avoid the potentially negative health consequences of this condition. Here are a few of the most common complaints we hear from our TMJ patients:

Common symptoms of TMJ

Jaw pain or soreness
Shoulder pain
Tingling of fingers
Neck pain
Tooth loss
Dental problems
Jaw clenching or tooth grinding

Ringing in the ears
