Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)

The Temporal Mandibular Joint is the hinge that connects the lower jaw (mandible) to the temporal bone of the skull. The joint is flexible allowing the joint to function like no other in our body. Symptoms of the TMJ include:
-pain, tenderness in the joint area
-clicking, popping upon opening with or without pain
-difficulty chewing
-limited jaw opening
Dr. DiMento will conduct a careful patient history along with a physical exam to determine the cause of your symptoms and the best available treatment.
