The upper and lower parts have a place of intersection called the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which provides the hinge that allows the two parts to separate and then meet again repeatedly. What happens, though, when this joint gets worn down? Your local dentist says there are certain signs that will alert you of a problem. Learn what the TMJ symptoms are as you continue reading.

Has receiving a restful night’s sleep been interrupted by frequent snoring? If you find yourself waking with a sore or dry throat, you may snore more than the average person. Although it is normal for it to happen from time to time, if it is an ongoing problem, it could indicate that you have a more serious issue that requires treatment. Chronic snoring is among one of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea. This sleep disorder causes you to stop breathing several times throughout the night, which can significantly impact your general health. To stop your snoring and to breathe easier, you may need sleep apnea treatment.

Temporomandibular joint disorder—usually called TMJ or TMD, affects the joints that link your lower or mandibular jaw to the temporal bone of the skull. Want to know where these joints are? Place your fingertips on both sides of your face just in front of your ears. Now open and close your mouth a couple of times and you’ll feel these joints at work. When functioning properly, the temporomandibular joints allow you to open and close easily, so you can speak, eat, laugh and yawn. If there is a malfunction, however, this simple movement can be quite painful. Unfortunately, some people are more at risk for TMJ than others. Let’s take a look at the risk factors and how TMJ therapy in Summerlin can help.
