TMJ disorder is a common condition that affects the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) of your jaw and can have debilitating effects on your long-term oral health and quality of life. Located in front of each ear, your TMJs give you the ability to open and close your mouth for basic tasks, such as eating, talking, and chewing. TMJ disorder is often the result of stress, injury, dental or jaw misalignment, and teeth grinding. At Elite Dental Care in Germantown, Trenton, and Jackson, TN, we offer comfortable, and customized oral appliances to help realign the jaw and relieve symptoms as an effective TMJ treatment.
