What is TMJ Disorder?

TMJ disorder or TMJ Syndrome are terms used to cover all of the conditions associated with the TMJ joint. When this joint is out of alignment or experiencing disfunction, it can cause you significant pain. Many people will go years with symptoms of TMJ and not properly get it treated assuming it’s some other ailment. Many of the symtoms of TMJ can be confusing, because there could be many causes for them.


TMJ is often caused by the bite not being aligned. This misaligned jaw can cause you to grind or clinch your teeth leading to a host of complications. By correcting the alignment of the jaw this pain will literally disappear. Besides the obvious reason of treating your TMJ for the pain, it’s also important because if untreated, it can lead to long term damage and complications in your jaw.

This is why if you experience any of the following symtoms it’s crucial that you visit our Norman TMJ specialists for a consultation. There is no reason to suffer unnecessary pain when it’s completely avoidable.

For a large majority of patients this can be done by making a customized bite guard for you. This is simply a temporary mouth piece that fits over the teeth and helps align the bite.
