What Is TMJ Disorder?

TMJ disorder occurs when your jaw joint isn’t working properly and can have many different causes. Although this may sound like a simple problem, its effects can be complicated and far-reaching.

Your jaw joint exists at a major crossroads of your body. It’s directly involved in eating, drinking, speaking, and breathing. Indirectly, the muscles that control your jaw help keep your neck in alignment and support your head. In addition, many of the major nerves and blood vessels from your ear run very close to your jaw joint.

As a result, TMJ disorder can cause many different symptoms.

Symptoms Include:
  • Jaw pain
  • Headaches
  • Jaw sounds: clicking, popping, or grinding
  • Sore teeth
  • Worn, chipped, or cracked teeth
  • Pain in the face, or behind the eye
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Vertigo, dizziness, or balance problems (Meniere’s disease)
  • Neck pain
  • Upper back pain
  • Tingling or numbness in the fingers

Dr. Becky Coats

After 18 years of practicing dentistry and thousands of hours of continuing education, a recurring factor present for many of my patients was their experience with a breakdown of dentistry and chronic pain.

My studies have given me the resources to understand how muscles, TMJ position, posture, airway and the way teeth bite all go together like a gear system. That was the connection to understand why this was happening to these patients! The “ah-ha” moment!

My passion is to help you discover why your pain has happened, and then give you choices to get relief. TMJ+ is the name that embodies the source and the solution for your relief.

Through TMJ appliances, TMJ orthodontics, sleep appliance solutions and Bite Reconstruction, I’m able to give advanced solutions for TMJ disorder. You’ll rest easy knowing that I can help you with all of your treatments from cleanings, oral surgery, and restorative dentistry, to implants and dentures. I make excellent care easier than you’ve ever experienced in the past, and my network of support to help my patients is unmatched in our region.

I can’t wait to help you!
