TMD Therapy In Trinity, Florida

What is TMD/TMJ?

TMJ stands for Temporomandibular Joint. That is the joint that connects the jawbone to the skull on each side. Temporomandibular Disorder, or TMD, refers to issues affecting the TMJ and the muscles and soft tissues that surround it. Common TMD symptoms include:


  • Jaw pain
  • Clicking jaw joint
  • Jaw stiffness
  • Stuck jaw, open or closed
  • Clenching or grinding teeth
  • Pain in cheeks and temples

What are the causes of TMD?

Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders, commonly called “TMD” (and sometimes mistakenly called TMJ), are a group of conditions that cause pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement. We don’t know for certain how many people have TMJ disorders, but some estimates suggest that over 10 million Americans are affected. The condition appears to be more common in women than in men.


For most people, pain in the area of the jaw joint or muscles does not signal a serious problem. Generally, discomfort from these conditions is occasional and temporary, often occurring in cycles. The pain eventually goes away with little or no treatment. Some people, however, develop significant, long-term symptoms.


We don’t know what causes TMD. Dentists believe symptoms arise from problems with the muscles of your jaw or with the parts of the joint itself.


Injury to your jaw, the joint, or the muscles of your head and neck — like from a heavy blow or whiplash — can lead to TMD.

What is the treatment process?

Dr. Xhoana Gjelaj will recommend a conservative treatment plan based on your individual needs. We can help relieve TMD pain, reduce stiffness, and increase function.
