It can be difficult to diagnose temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders (TMD) for many reasons. With a less than clear understanding of the causes and exact symptoms affecting TMD and the surrounding muscles, health care professionals are often hesitant to diagnose TMD. If you have already taken the steps to complete ongoing education in the area of craniofacial pain, then you are one step ahead of most dentists. Advanced training and expertise in TMJ pain and TMD can place you at a unique position to provide the best care possible for your patients’ jaw pain.

To help your patients better understand TMJ pain and TMD, we have created the infographic below. Take a look and reach out if you have any questions about TMD or if you want to, feel free to share this infographic with your patients on social media or by printing it out and posting it in your office. The more a patient can learn about certain conditions, the better we can care for them. 

If you are unaware of the steps to take to treat your patients’ pain or if you are interested in advancing your knowledge, reach out and sign up for an upcoming webinar. We are here to work with you and help you find the best ways to reduce your patients’ pain and discomfort.
