TMJ / TMD Symptoms

San Ramon, Alamo, Danville, Pleasanton & Walnut Creek areas

Diablo Neuromuscular DentistryTemporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) can cause a wide variety of symptoms, which appear and combine differently in each person, depending on exactly how they're being caused.

Part of the problem of TMD symptoms is that they're sometimes dismissed as being "psychological" or "imagined". Typically, a doctor will not determine their source as being dental. Painkillers may be prescribed, and temporary relief will certainly feel like a blessing. Headaches are the most common symptom. They can be severe and are often misdiagnosed as migraines. You can take pain medication each time, but wouldn't it be better to find their cause and eliminate them altogether?

"The end result was phenomenal and my experience was very pleasant; I had no pain during or after the procedure." - Fiona M.

The symptoms can affect the jaw itself, as well as the entire face and head, the neck and shoulders, and even the arms and hands. This is because several major sensory nerves run through the face and head, with many branches. When there's long-term tension in the jaw muscles, inflammation builds up in all the related tissues: the ligaments, nerves and bones as well as the muscles.

Here are some links with more information on each symptom.

If you have any of these symptoms and would like to learn whether their cause might be dental, please contact us for an initial consultation. Dr. Anderson will be glad to listen to your concerns, and answer questions, and together you can determine what might be the best step to take next. Don't suffer that pain indefinitely, because there is a remedy.
