What is TMJ/TMD?
TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, and this refers to the small hinges that allow your lower jaw to move freely in all directions. A TMJ disorder, or TMD, can develop due to teeth grinding, an uneven bite, or injury that prevents the joint from functioning properly. Fortunately, by making small adjustments to the teeth and having a patient wear a custom oral appliance to bed, Dr. Hale can enable a patient to get out of pain and be more comfortable for years to come.
