You may not realize it, but your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the most complicated joint in the body! This is partly because it’s the only joint that’s bilateral, meaning that the right and left sides have to smoothly work together for the joint to function properly. In addition, every time you eat something the chewing forces on each side must be balanced. As if that weren’t enough, the TMJ is also unique because it actually hinges and slides, whereas most of the joints in the body only move one way.
As you can imagine, all of these “moving parts” mean that your jaws can become painful if any of those movements are off track. If you’ve ever experienced this type of pain and discomfort you know how it can impact your life. The good news is that with advances in modern dentistry, help is available! In this blog, we’ll take a look at how TMJ therapy in Weatherford can be an effective, non-surgical way to treat this challenging condition.
