Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) can occur in adults and kids alike. While the exact cause of TMD can vary from person to person, the pain it causes can have debilitating effects on a child's daily routine. Just about everything from eating to swallowing to sleeping can be disrupted by pain from TMD.
Orofacial Myologists are trained to diagnose and treat TMD. It is not a 'normal' thing that should be ignored as it can get progressively worse. With a few simple exercises, one of our OMTs can help you get rid of your jaw pain and also help you reduce the effects if it occurs in the future.
Call us today and schedule an appointment if your child has jaw pain that doesn't seem to go away. We can help.
