More people suffer from temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) than you may realize. Many patients come to us with chronic facial pain, buzzing ears, and recurring headaches. Some visit various doctors without any success.

TMJ disorder is a common cause of headaches and pain. These temporomandibular joints (TMJ) lie on either side of the head. They connect the lower mandible to the rest of the skull, and when they do not function properly, they can cause severe pain.

At Butler Smiles Dental Care, we understand the cause of your pain and how we can resolve it. Our compassionate team is on your side and will work hard to find the right treatment for you.
