Goeringer Family Dentistry TMJ Disorders and Jaw Pain
The temporomandibular joint, TMJ, is a source of pain for many patients. TMJ disorders can stem from a variety of different things, including mouth trauma, jaw injury, arthritis, joint damage, and teeth clenching. TMJ disorders are fairly easy to notice, as they cause pain to your jaw. You may experience jaw pain or tenderness, pain while chewing, facial pain, and joint locking. If you experience these symptoms, call Goeringer Family Dentistry at (570) 675-3646 for an appointment. Dr. Goeringer and his staff will evaluate your jaw pain, and work out a treatment plan to alleviate the pain.
