Seeking treatment is important

If you decide to forgo TMJ treatment, you may end up with more significant health concerns down the road. Untreated TMJ can lead to...

  • Arthritis. Putting strain on your jaw can cause joint permanent damage.
  • Injuries. If your TMJ is severe enough, you could crack or dislocate your jaw.
  • Tooth decay. Grinding or clenching your teeth can wear down your enamel.
