TMJ Symptoms

Do you suffer from TMJ? You are not alone. TMJ, a problem caused by improper alignment of the temporomandibular joint, is a common problem affecting over 20 million people. While TMJ symptoms are more often found in women, men can also experience them. Some of the most common symptoms of TMJ include:

  • Grinding of the teeth
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Neck and upper back stiffness
  • Pain in the jaw joints
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Vertigo

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, please contact Lakota Dental immediately to schedule an appointment. Dr. Mike Lakota will examine the position of your jaw and discuss your symptoms before offering an accurate diagnosis. The next step would be designing a custom orthotic device to treat your TMJ.
