What is TMJ | TMD?

TMJ/TMD is a condition that causes chronic headaches, back, neck, and shoulder pain, and several other painful symptoms. Oftentimes these symptoms are not immediately associated with a misaligned bite, and you can endure years of suffering before being properly diagnosed.

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) is a condition in which your bite becomes misaligned, causing many serious painful health problems. Sometimes, the acronym TMJ will be used interchangeably with TMD, but TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint.

Over 15% of American adults suffer from chronic facial pain related to the temporomandibular joint. Dr. James Tong, the go-to dentist in Gaithersburg, MD, wants to help those in our local area to deal with their pain with various treatment options. If you have any of the symptoms below, please reach out to our office about treatment.
