What is a TMJ Disorder?

Also known as Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome, TMJ disorder is a pain in the jaw caused by the different medical issues. The TMJ is connected to the skull or temporal bone in front of the ear. Facial muscles that are used for chewing are also attached to the lower jaw.

The Causes of TMJ Syndrome

TMJ syndrome can be caused by a lot of medical problems such as diseases, wear and tear, and trauma.

The continuous grinding, gritting or clenching of the temporomandibular joint can alter the state of one’s teeth. Macrotrauma on the other hand is caused by accidents, punching or a damaged cartilage disc of the joint.
  • Arthritis: Our jaw point is prone to arthritic changes and these changes are sometimes caused by osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis that involves joint degeneration, aging, inflammation in joints or join deformity.

I was looking for a dentist near me and my sister recommended Advanced Dental Concept! My whole experience was good. I was treated nicely the moment I walked in. The place was welcoming and the staff was friendly. I had my check up there and will come back for my teeth whitening treatment!

I found the right orthodontist for me here in Hammond, LA here at this dental facility. When it comes to oral health, I really want the best and I really did search the city for the best ortho for me. When I got here, I am so happy and relieved that I finally found the one for me. She was very attentive and she made me feel very comfortable. The treatment is also very effective and now I have straight,white teeth!

THE DENTISTS AND STAFF ARE AMAZING! I haven't been to the dentist in 10+ years because my last visit was so traumatizing. Recently my tooth broke and another was fractured due to me constantly grinding them in my sleep. I couldn't have wished for better service. They were so nice and kind to me. The dentist kept me informed of everything that was going on while she was doing it. The office was really clean and comfortable. I even got a call a few days later to see how I was doing and was informed that I could come in for a follow up appointment to check the healing process free of charge! I would definitely recommend them and will be going back on a regular basis. Extremely satisfied customer....Donna Evans

I was advised to see an orthodontist to correct my bite. I am glad I saw your website and read some of the reviews. By reading those customers testimonials, I decided to go visit your dentist and I am not disappointed by the service you have given me. Added factors are the place is clean and well maintained.

Very pleasant visit... No wait time at all, they saw me right when my scheduled appointment was, and I was in and out of the office for a cleaning in less than a half hour total. Very professional!
