Are you one of the many Daly City TMJ sufferers? If you are affected by Temporomandibular joint or TMJ disorder, you know how the pain and discomfort can affect your life. Kenneth Hovden DDS TMJ treatment in the San Francisco area has helped countless Daly City TMJ patients manage their TMJ disorder.
The Temporomandibular or jaw joint connects the lower jaw bone to the skull. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include jaw and facial pain, headaches, earaches, neck pain and chewing difficulty. TMJ disease is often associated with jaw clicking, locking or clenching, and can cause harmful tooth damage and bone loss.
Many San Mateo, Pacifica and Half Moon Bay TMJ patients first sought a possible TMJ diagnosis after trying unsuccessfully to relieve their frequent headaches. Since opening Kenneth Hovden DDS in 1981, we have discovered that many dental patients don’t realize they have TMJ disorder because it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what is causing the pain. A TMJ specialist can properly diagnose your specific TMJ issues and recommend an effective course of action.
Because a comprehensive treatment plan is most successful, we work hand-in-hand with a network of San Francisco TMJ specialists including ENT doctors, neurologists and physical therapists. There are many facets to this often misunderstood disorder. If you are suffering from jaw pain, we recommend a consultation with Kenneth Hovden at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City.
At Kenneth Hovden DDS, we take jaw pain seriously.
