Dr. Quandt and the Green Bay Dental Difference
TMJ disorder, also known as TMJ dysfunction or TMD, results in bothersome and downright painful symptoms. Misalignment of the jaw can cause pain to radiate through to the jaw, ears, head, and even the back. Many report pain that symptoms tend to worsen during periods of increased stress. Often confused for tension headaches, these headaches could be the result of too much jaw-clenching.
TMJ disorder can occur for a number of reasons, such as genetics, an accident or trauma to the face, or because of bruxism (teeth grinding). Whatever the cause, it is important to be aware that there are dentists who practice neuromuscular dentistry in Green Bay that can help. Dr. Scott Quandt is a skilled dentist with vast expertise in treating TMJ disorder and in helping people eliminate TMJ headaches, back pain, and other associated symptoms.
