What is TMJ or TMD?

“The thing with TMJ or TMD is it can show up in a lot of different ways. It can show up as headaches, neck aches, toothaches, sinus pressure, facial tension, or premature wearing of the teeth.”
‑ Dr. Derrick Johnson

Stop Pain & Suffering

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, or TMD, is a condition where the lower jaw isn’t properly aligned with the base of the skull, causing headaches, facial pain, and even ear disorders. It’s often called the “Grand Imposter” because it mimics many other conditions that seem unrelated to your dental health. This also makes it difficult to receive proper treatment. At Integrated Dentistry, we have extensive experience with this disorder and can help you overcome the pain you’ve been feeling. In fact, Dr. Johnson has already helped hundreds of patients suffering from TMD and he can help you too.

Do I have TMJ or TMD?

If you suffer from any of the following: migraines, tension headaches, facial fatigue, jaw pain, worn teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, congestion or stuffiness of the ears, numbness of the fingers, clenching teeth, grinding of the teeth, limited jaw movement or locking of the jaw, neck aches, shoulder or back pain, sensitive teeth, snoring or sleep apnea, you may have TMJ/TMD.

Suzanne Feels 100% Better Thanks to Dr. Derrick Johnson

When Suzanne came to Dr. Johnson, she was complaining of headaches and an inability to chew and eat food without pain. Her jaw was badly out of alignment due to teeth that were out of place and through a series of porcelain crowns and a custom orthotic, she’s been able to eat again and enjoys life pain‑free!
