Do you suffer from chronic headaches, discomfort in your jaw, sinus pressure, or ringing ears? Has it become more difficult to for you to brush or floss, because opening your mouth causes your jaw to feel tender or sore? Do you find that your jaw joint pops, clicks, or grates often?

If your answer is yes to some of these questions, then there is a chance you have developed TMD. TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) can occur for a number of reasons.

Causes of Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction

Some of the causes of TMD include:

Injury of the TMJ

If you have ever injured the cartilage around your TMJ, or your TMJ itself, it can result in TMD occurring.

Bad Bite

If your jaw is misaligned, or you have a bad bite (a bite that does not bite evenly) it can result in TMD and the need for treatment.


If you grind your teeth while you are awake or when you sleep, it can result in TMD occurring (and usually other issues as well, including headaches). Tooth grinding can cause other issues beyond TMD as well.

At Harris Dental we offer a drug-free method for treating TMD by using therapies that can help retrain and recalibrate muscles and soft tissues, as well as mechanical components of your jaw. This makes it so that your body can interface with your nervous system–helping to reduce discomfort and other symptoms such as headaches and sinus pressure.

In addition to these treatments, we can use special electrical stimulation systems as well as cold laser therapy for TMJ treatment.

"So happy I found Harris Dental, they really care about their patients and are knowledgeable when it comes to TMJ. I can't give enough praise on how well they've taken care of me and the empathy they have given me. I suffer from chronic TMJ, I have been to some of what I thought were the best doctors here in Arizona that treat my chronic condition. I always left other doctors with a splint that never fit right and caused me more pain and more problems. Since I have been going to Harris Dental I'm now comfortable and I have a whole lot more great days then I have had in over thirteen years of living in pain. So very happy! 🙂 THANK YOU!"
