Owasso TMJ Treatment Services for Improved Oral Health

Are you experiencing head, neck, or shoulder pain or having problems moving your jaw? It’s time to get screened for TMJ. TMJ, or TMD, is a disorder caused by the joint that connects to the lower jaw becoming injured or shifting out of place, causing discomfort and misalignment. This often happens due to teeth grinding (bruxism), arthritis, and head, neck, or jaw injury. TMJ therapy, also known as a temporomandibular joint treatment, is focused on correcting a misaligned jaw.
