What Is TMJ?
TMD (temporomandibular disorders), commonly referred to as TMJ, is characterized by significant pain in the jaw and limitation in jaw joint movement. It can affect chewing, talking, swallowing, and in some cases can cause breathing issues.
Individuals diagnosed with this condition may experience a range of uncomfortable symptoms, including recurrent facial pain, swelling, constant teeth grinding, facial sensitivity, jaw joint locking, and a limited range of motion in the jaw.
If you are suffering from the following, you may need TMJ treatment:
- Pain and tenderness around the jaw, ears, cheeks, and neck
- Stiffness in the jaw
- Painful chewing
- Pain while yawning
- Locking of the jaw
- Change in facial expression

We'll Bill Through Your Medical Insurance
For some medical insurance companies, TMJ therapy is considered a medical expense, not a dental expense. In these cases, Sunnyvale Family and Cosmetic Dentistry bills directly to the medical insurance carrier, saving you time and money!
