Craniofacial Pain and TMD at Le Mars Dental Center

Temporomandibular joint disorder, more commonly called TMD or TMJ, is a condition that can cause a large variety of symptoms that frequently drive patients to see their primary healthcare provider. Symptoms include:

  • Facial or jaw pain (craniofacial pain)
  • Clicking or popping noises when chewing or talking
  • Lockjaw
  • Chronic headaches
  • Sinus pressure and pain
  • Eye pressure and pain
  • Pain or swelling around the jaw

TMD is caused by misalignment of the jaw and can result in pain and discomfort. In many cases, a specially trained dentist like Dr. Rhea may offer the best options to treat the cause of TMD instead of just addressing the symptoms.
