TMJ Syndrome

It is just three little letters.

But those three little letters can leave you in a world of pain. 

Dr. John clay is seeing patients with TMJ.

This is one of the most common causes of facial pain in young people. It often involves one-sided pain, worsened with chewing.

The pain is alleviated by over the counter anti-inflammatory drugs, jaw exercises and use of a bite plate at nighttime.

See your doctor if pain is unbearable or if it occurs in patients over 50.
