Koch Aesthetic Dentistry has helped countless grateful Birmingham, Alabama TMJ patients by providing treatment and therapy to manage their TMJ disorder.
The Temporomandibular or jaw joint connects the lower jaw bone to the skull. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include jaw and facial pain, headaches, earaches, neck pain and chewing difficulty. TMJ disease is often associated with jaw clicking, locking or clenching, and can cause tooth damage and bone loss.
Many TMJ patients first unsuccessfully pursue relief from their frequent headaches.
