Temporomandibular dysfunction (TMJ) is not commonly known, but the symptoms that come from it are. Most people have locked jaws before they seek professional treatment for jaw pain and joint issues. Perhaps it is even less common knowledge that TMJ can be treated by dental professionals. Our team at Platinum Dental Care in Sandy is here for you!

Can you prevent TMJ?
As dental professionals, our team believes that the best prevention against TMJ is knowing how your body and jaw work. Eating softer foods and chewing less strenuously can help keep your jaw and joints from being overworked, but if you don’t know how to recognize symptoms of TMJ and irregularity, you can’t catch the problem before it happens.
See the next section to learn the symptoms of TMJ and how you can recognize when to seek professional help.
