TMJ, TMD – Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

TMJ or TMD are broad terms used to cover acute or chronic inflammation of the temporomandibular joint, or the joint which connects the jaw to the skull. Disorders in this region can result in considerable pain and/or impairment in the face, jaw joint, neck and shoulders. Other symptoms are headaches, bite problems, popping sounds when the jaw is in motion, and difficulty opening the jaw or it being locked in one position.

TMJ or TMD are often treated with bite splints, bite guards, medication, restorative dentistry, or adjustment of the bite to bring it into balance.

Testimonials
"You definitely go above and beyond in the customer service dept.  I have never been treated this good in a dentist office."

- Cathy W.

"From childhood and the ugly experiences  I suffered, it was nearly impossible to get me to a dentist by free will.  Circumstances brought me to Dr. Lee Long and the experience has brought me around.  His compassion and expertise along with lack of judgmental posturing has made me not only a patient, but a fan also.  No pain, no problem."
