<strong>Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)</strong> The Tempromandibular Joint (TMJ) is a highly complex joint. When it is not functioning at its optimum, major things can go wrong. Symptoms such as joint noises, locking of the jaw joint and pain are some of the most common problems associated with TMJ Dysfunction. The challenge with diagnosing TMJ Dysfunction is that there are a number of variables that can contribute to the problem. At Kieffer Orthodontics, Dr. Kieffer will provide a comprehensive examination in order to review these variables which may be causing the TMJ symptoms. Dr. Kieffer will then discuss treatment options to address the problem for each individual’s needs.
