If you wake up with headaches and jaw pain and hear clicking or popping sounds when you open or close your mouth, you might have a TMJ disorder. TMJ disorders occur when the bite is unbalanced where the lower and upper jaws meet. The imbalance then causes strain on the surrounding tissue that can result in painful symptoms such as headaches, jaw pain, and neck pain.
Dr. Haddad will use advanced technology and sophisticated computer analysis to diagnose TMJ, track jaw muscle activity, and plan your treatment. With a neuromuscular approach, he will use a variety of treatment measures to establish the bite in the correct position.
