TMJ Pain Relief with Specialized Treatment

TMJ Pain Relief with Specialized Treatment

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is essential for smooth jaw movement during activities like biting, chewing, yawning, and talking. However, issues such as injury, stress, overuse, or misalignment can lead to TMJ dysfunction, causing jaw pain and related symptoms. Dr. Brian Kovara specializes in providing effective relief for TMJ symptoms, addressing issues like popping or clicking sounds, jaw pain spreading to the ears, neck, face, or shoulders, difficulty talking or chewing, occasional jaw locking or grating, and changes in the way teeth fit together.

Physical Injury

Trauma from a car accident, sports injury, or other forms of impact can displace the temporomandibular joint, leading to painful grinding of soft tissues and bones.



Chronic stress and tension often result in teeth clenching or grinding, known as bruxism. Both habits exert excessive stress on the TMJ, causing pain, inflammation, and other TMJ symptoms.
