At Twin Cities TMJ & Facial Pain Clinic, our primary mission is to inform and educate our patients.
Our Patient Education section includes a lot of information on TMJ/TMD disorders and treatments for dental and facial pain problems, including:
RECOGNIZE THAT TMD SYMPTOMS ARE NOT LIFE THREATENING EVEN THOUGH THEY CAN BE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.
INJURY TO THE TMJ AND JAW MUSCLES ARE VERY COMMON, AND JOINT NOISES (CLICKING, POPPING) AND LOCKING OF THE JAW ARE ALSO COMMON.
MOST OFTEN THESE SYMPTOMS WILL IMPROVE OVER TIME. CHANGING HABITS, RELAXING THE AREA AND AVOIDING ADDITIONAL INJURY AND STRAIN WILL SPEED UP YOUR RECOVERY.
