WHY TREAT TMJ?
Once a bite problem has been identified, it is important to treat it as soon as possible to alleviate symptoms and restore your quality of life. If left untreated, TMJ can result in tooth damage, jaw joint damage and even tooth loss. An imbalanced bite can put patients at an increased risk of developing decay and periodontal disease (gum disease).
