TMJ issues come with many symptoms. People suffering from TMJ-dysfunction/disorder may experience frequent headaches, pains in the neck, back or shoulders, ear pain, dizziness, ringing in the ears or jaw clicking. If you ever experience those problems and are unsure what is causing them, a visit to your dentist might be in order, as it could be TMJ related.

At Fuqua Advanced Dental, we know that TMJ-dysfunction is commonplace but complicated. The TMJ Association claims that around 35 million people are affected by TMJ-disorders in the United States. Most of those affected are women, at a ratio of nine to one. In fact, at Fuqua Advanced Dental, we check for signs of both TMJ-dysfunction and a similar disorder named bruxism (excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching) at every regular dental visit.
