TMJ Syndrome is officially known as Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome, and it is associated with pain in the jaw joint that can be caused by a variety of problems. The temporomandibular joint connects the lower jaw to the skull in front of the ear. By placing your finger close to your ears on the side of your face you can feel these joints. Issues associated with TMJ Syndrome include a clicking sound while eating, a jaw that is locked in position or difficult to open, head aches, facial and ear pain. For those suffering from TMJ Syndrome, Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD will conduct a thorough examination to diagnose TMJ and determine the underlying causes.
