What is Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction?

One of the most complicated joints in the human body, the temporomandibular (TMJ) joint allows you to open your mouth wide and also move your jaw from left to right. Sometimes the TMJ is aggravated and TMJ disorder (TMD) develops causing migraine headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, and discomfort chewing or just opening the mouth. Dr. Sykes at The Reno Dentist serving the Reno – Spanish Springs – Sparks NV metro area is professionally skilled and trained to help you with TMJ disorders and migraine treatment.

We recognize what constant pain can do to you and those around you, and will begin your care the minute you walk through the door. Your eyes, pounding in pain from migraines that plague your life, will not be subjected to overhead, glaring lighting because we know how difficult it is to have ongoing discomfort due to TMD. We realize that every patient is different in how their TMJ treatment will proceed.
