TMD (Jaw Pain) Therapy − Washington, MI

Commonly misdiagnosed or overlooked, a subtle misalignment in the temporomandibular joint can be a common & significant source of head & neck pain. If you have frequent & severe head or neck pain, you owe it to yourself to investigate our doctor’s life-changing approach to correcting these TMJ problems.

Jaw Surgery: If you have facial pain, headaches or difficulty moving your jaw because of a temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), an oral surgeon can help. While a TMD can usually be resolved with minimally invasive treatment, surgery may be necessary in serious cases.

You may also need jaw surgery if you have a severely misaligned bite. Though orthodontic appliances like braces are usually sufficient to correct common bite problems, some patients have alignment issues with their jaw rather than their teeth. To fix this, an oral surgeon has to perform orthognathic surgery to reposition the jaw. This only happens in serious cases when other methods of bite adjustment have not worked.
