TMJ Dentist For Those In Homosassa Springs, Spring Hill, Brooksville, Tampa, & Surrounding Areas
If your dentist refers to TMJ disorder, they’re talking about one or both of your temporolmandibular joints. Those are hinge joints on either side of your face that attach the jaw to the temporal bone of the skull. You use those joints whenever you speak, chew, yawn, sneeze or laugh. When one or both of those joints doesn’t align with the jaw properly, you’ll likely suffer stabbing or burning facial pain from your trigeminal nerve. Damage to your trigeminal nerve might first be diagnosed by our emergency dentist after a physically traumatic event. That pain might be intermittent, or it could be prolonged for months or even years depending on the extent of the TMJ damage.
If you’re experiencing TMJ pain issues, our TMJ dentist at Dental Associates of Florida in Homosassa Springs, has specific TMJ training and experience in treating you for your pain caused by TMJ misalignment.
