Over 50 million Americans annually have headaches so severe that they seek medical help. Most of these people state that their head pain is a disruptive force in their daily lives. The majority of these patients suffer from Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD).
TMD is a group of separate but related disorders of the temporomandibular joint and all the associated muscles, ligaments, nerves, etc. Unfortunately, TMDs are the most frequently misdiagnosed of the medical/dental conditions.
After a thorough examination and appropriate X-rays, Dr. Schnall will help to identify the source of the discomfort. They will then recommend what type of treatment is needed for your condition and begin moving forward with a step-by-step process.
