Are you in the 5 to 12% of the population who suffers from TMJ disorder? According to the US National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, TMJ disorder is the second-most common musculoskeletal condition in the country. TMJ disorder is common among people between the ages of 20-40 and 4 times as many women suffer from TMJ disorder than men. Stress is a common cause of TMJ along with anxiety, bruxism (teeth grinding), and teeth clinching. Symptoms of TMJ can include neck and facial pain, headache, migraine, earache, and sinus pain. If untreated, these symptoms may become chronic and centralized within the nervous system, becoming more difficult to treat. At AZTMJ, Dr. Stan Farrell is one of the best-qualified doctors in the country for treating TMJ. His state-of-the-art treatments are proven to alleviate pain over the long term without the dangers of addiction to prescribed medications. Dr. Stan Farrell’s non-invasive approach to treating TMJ, which includes the use of a dental splint device, can often reposition the jaw without discomfort and helps strengthen facial muscles to assist in maintaining the proper jaw position over the long term. If you or someone you know is experiencing jaw pain or any type of facial pain please schedule an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Farrell at 480-945-3629 or visit us at www.az-tmj.com for more information.
