Misdiagnosis of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is common. Dr. G. Adam Fulton is a Dawson doctor, trained to take an integrative approach to care. Dawson doctors look at the big picture, knowing that joints, muscles and teeth must be in harmony. Signs that you are suffering from TMJ disorder include:
Teeth grinding is a contributor to TMJ disorder and must be addressed as part of any treatment for TMJ pain. Grinding and clenching your teeth places a destructive amount of pressure and tension on the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. You may not be consciously aware that you are clenching during the day and grinding your teeth as you sleep. As a Dawson dentist, Dr. Fulton has the training and experience to provide you with comprehensive care in order to resolve your seemingly unrelated symptoms.
