Are you one of the many Elgin TMJ sufferers? If you are affected by Temporomandibular joint or TMJ disorder, you know how the pain and discomfort can influence your life. David A. Rice, DDS TMJ treatment in the St Charles IL area has helped countless Elgin TMJ patients manage their TMJ disorder.
The Temporomandibular or jaw joint connects the lower jaw bone to the skull. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include jaw and facial pain, headaches, earaches, neck pain and chewing difficulty. TMJ disease is often associated with jaw clicking, locking, or clenching, and it can cause dangerous tooth damage and bone loss.
Many Bartlett IL, South Elgin and Wayne TMJ patients first sought a possible TMJ diagnosis after trying unsuccessfully to relieve their frequent headaches.
Since opening David A. Rice, DDS in 1986, we have discovered that many dental patients don’t realize they have TMJ disorder because it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what is causing the pain. A TMJ specialist can properly diagnose your specific TMJ issues and recommend an effective course of action.
Because a comprehensive treatment plan is most successful, we work hand-in-hand with a network of St Charles IL TMJ specialists including ENT doctors, neurologists, and physical therapists. There are many facets to this often misunderstood disorder. If you are suffering from jaw pain, we recommend a consultation with Dr. Rice at David A. Rice, DDS in Elgin.
