What is TMJ Disorder?
Many people who experience frequent headaches are less likely to associate their pain with their jaw. Rather, they’ll seek medical treatment for migraines or resort to over-the-counter painkillers that only mask the symptoms. In addition to headaches, neck and shoulder pain, as well as ringing in the ears, are usually thought to be the result of a poor night’s sleep when in reality, it’s the result of a bigger problem. TMJ disorder is very frequently misdiagnosed because its symptoms are generally associated with another more common condition. However, once TMJ is diagnosed, you can receive treatment that targets the cause of the problem and alleviates all of your discomforts. When you are experiencing chronic pain on and around your face, it’s time that you visit La Jolla Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics in San Diego where Dr. Kohani can perform diagnostic testing and determine the best treatment option for the pain you are experiencing.
