Temporomandibular Joint

The TM joint is located just in front of both your ears and connects your bottom jaw with your teeth, a hinge that allows you to open and close your mouth. Contributing factors to TMJ disorder include missing teeth, teeth not coming together properly when you bite, stress, excessive chewing of gum, sports injury, and grinding teeth (bruxism).

Fortunately, Wilshire Smile Studio is a renowned expert in effective therapies to relieve the pain and stress of TMJ disorder, as well as to help patients prevent this from recurring. Our experienced doctors can diagnose the individual issues and teach relaxation techniques and neuromuscular exercises to move the jaw and related tissues to their correct positions.
