This condition can cause discomfort during everyday activities such as eating, talking, and yawning.

  • How do I know if I have TMJ?

These symptoms often worsen with stress or excessive jaw movements. At Stiles Dental Group, we can provide a thorough evaluation to diagnose this condition and discuss your symptoms and concerns in detail.

  • What causes TMJ Disorder?

    While the exact cause of TMJ Disorder is unknown, several factors must be considered, including jaw injuries, arthritis, genetic predisposition, or habits such as teeth grinding and clenching. Stress can also contribute to the worsening of this condition. Our team at Stiles Dental Group takes a comprehensive approach to developing a treatment plan that addresses these underlying issues.
