  • Radiating pain in the face, neck, or shoulders
  • Limited movement or locking of the jaw
  • Painful clicking or grating when opening or closing the mouth
  • Significant change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together
  • Symptoms can also include headaches, earaches, dizziness, hearing problems, and difficulty swallowing

Chiropractic treatment of TMJD can alleviate symptoms by correcting misalignments in the spine and re-positioning the jaw. Therapeutic exercises and improving posture also help to improve tracking and movement.

The Journal of Oral Rehabilitation recommends examination of the cervical spine in TMJD patients, even without cervical complaints. These findings are supported by the Journal of Cranio and Clinical Oral Investigation as well. At Bence Chiropractic Wellness Center, we are trained to examine your neck and jaw to determine the best course of co-managed care with your oral health physician.

I had severe TMJ and for 2 years was treated by a specialist. I used a bite guard 24/7 for 2 years. I have also had Botox treatment for the headaches and jaw and ear pain. It would give some relief. But since I have been coming to Dr. Bence for adjustments, I no longer wake up with headaches, I do not take Motrin daily and have not had the severe ear pain. I only wear my bite guard at night. The change has been quite a blessing. R.B.

With proper care and treatment of spinal disorders, TMJD patients can achieve pain relief and correction. Treatments at Bence Chiropractic Wellness Center enable the body to respond to dental changes so that care received from your oral health physician has greater and lasting results.
