Persistent headaches, dizziness, and discomfort while eating or talking are all signs of an unbalanced temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Bothell patients suffering from an unbalanced TMJ can find permanent relief and enjoy life again with the help of Dr. Crisafulli!
Symptoms of TMJ Disorder
The TMJ is the joint where your jaw meets the skull and is located right below each ear. When unbalanced, it can create a variety of symptoms:
- Headaches or migraines
- Popping or clicking of the jaw
- Difficulty chewing or swallowing
- Muscle aches of the face, neck, shoulders, or back
- Dizziness or vertigo
- Ringing in the ears
- Worn or loose teeth
Dr. Crisafulli has the background needed to provide effective therapy for disorders of the TMJ in Bothell. She has extensive training and experience in this area and understands how the chewing system interacts with the body. By studying your uncomfortable joint, Dr. Crisafulli can determine if an orthotic appliance would help establish a more comfortable bite position, or if more extensive therapy is needed.
