What is a TMJ and a TMD?

TMJ stands for ‘temporomandibular joints’. Your temporomandibular joints connect your jawbone to your skull. They are the joints that allow you to move your mouth and are a necessary component to your overall oral health. Sometimes when these joints become overused, they can cause a temporomandibular disorder or TMD. TMDs are very painful and hard to live with.

If you are experiencing the following symptoms, it may be a sign that you are suffering from a TMD:

  • Intense jaw pain
  • A stuffy feeling in the ears
  • Frequent headaches
  • Neck aches
  • A clicking or popping sound when your jaw moves
  • Face swelling
  • Muscle spasms
  • A change in the alignment of top and bottom teeth
  • Locked jaw or a limited opening of the mouth
  • Buzzing or ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Ear pain
  • Tired feeling in the face
  • Discomfort while chewing

    Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

    —Pat S.

    Jeanie M.

    I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

    I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

    —Leslee D.

    Cindy M.

    My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!
