Due to the complex interaction between the jaw joint, its structures and other structures in the head and neck, patients with TMD often suffer from symptoms that are similar to a number of other related disorders, including the ones we have listed here. In some cases, TMD signs and symptoms simply mimic other disorders. In other cases, related disorders coexist with a TMD problem.

This is why we review your medical history and your dental history in detail. We also consult with your physicians as needed. With multiple board certifications and 50+ years of combined experience, we have found that this is the best way to provide you with superior care - and, more importantly - treatment that get results.

You are not alone!?
According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research of the National Institutes of Health, approximately 10.8 million people in the U.S. suffer from TMD problems at any given time. Women are most affected, but men and children can also suffer from jaw-joint related pain.
If you experience frequent headaches and/or neck and facial pain, consult a qualified dentist first to rule out the possibility of a TMJ disorder. Doing so could eliminate the need for you to see a neurologist, otolaryngologist, or other medical specialist.
