The jawbone’s connected to the head bone—and that’s not just a well-known tune. The two really are connected by a complex system called the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ. When your TMJs (there is one on both sides of your face just in front of your ears) work correctly, you can easily and comfortably open and close your mouth to speak, chew, laugh and yawn. But if you have jaw joint problems, then these simple tasks may become very uncomfortable. Fortunately, there is a solution. Dr. Mindy Salzberg-Siegel provides treatment for TMJ in Clinton Township. She is able to evaluate your symptoms, give you a diagnosis and recommend treatments to address what’s causing your TMJ dysfunction.
