Relief Is Here
Sometimes it’s a clicking or popping sound. Other times it’s jaw pain so incapacitating that it can hinder you from engaging in common activities such as eating, speaking and even yawning. TMJ disorders (temporomandibular joint disorders, or TMD) can cause you a great deal of discomfort, including recurring headaches, jaw stiffness, joint cracking and locking, and jaw muscle spasms. TMJ disorders can also lead to malocclusion, which is the term that means your teeth don’t align properly when you bite down. With correct occlusion, your teeth, jaw, and joints all work together. This is essential to maintaining good overall oral health and functioning. Fortunately, Dr. Eric Baker and Dr. Tim Betita have extensive expertise in providing effective relief for TMJ issues—and keeping your jaws working the way they should.
