What Is TMJ/TMD?

One of the biggest dental mysteries of our time is TMD, or TMJ as it is often called. TMD stands for temporomandibular joint disorder. TMJ refers to the joint itself, but it is often incorrectly substituted for TMD. Whatever you call it, it represents a big mystery because the dental community has not yet found exactly what causes this condition. We know what contributes to the formation of this range of issues, however, and have developed some very effective treatments.

Symptoms of TMJ/TMD

Some of the symptoms caused by this disorder are easily mistaken for other problems. For example, you may have a toothache that you believe is caused by something like a cavity when, in fact, it is a product of a problem with your TMJ. Earaches, headaches, and shoulder or muscle aches also may be symptoms caused by TMD but are thought to be caused by something else. Top Indiana Orthodontist Dr. Surber and Dr. Schmidt will go over your symptoms and find the correct tmj  treatment to relieve your discomfort.
