If you experience discomfort, pain, or a popping noise when you open or close your mouth, you may be experiencing some of the telltale signs of TMJ. Your jaw uses a series of muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments to hold and move your mouth. If any part of this system is disrupted or becomes worn out, it can prevent your jaw from working properly and lead to a condition called TMJ disorder. Dr. James Powell of Exceptional Dentistry understands that your oral health plays a big part in your overall well-being. That’s why he uses his advanced training to provide TMJ treatment in Palmdale, California, and restore your comfort. Depending on your needs, we may recommend a TENS device to relax muscles and help in correcting the jaw position to treat TMJ/TMD problems. If you are experiencing jaw pain, we welcome you to contact our office at (661) 349-7725 and reserve your visit with our dentist.
