TMJ & TMD Treatment in
Midland, TX

Our temporomandibular joints or TMJ are found at the base of the joints and muscles in the jawline. These specific joints make it possible for us to open and close the mouth. Found on each side of your head, these joints work together simultaneously to help you chew, speak and swallow.

TMJ & TMD Treatment in Midland, TX

There are many reasons why people suffer from TMJ. They include arthritis, injury, tooth decay, poor jaw alignment, stress, teeth grinding and dislocation from an accident. TMJ and TMD often cause discomfort and pain, leading to patients seeking relief from symptoms. Symptoms can be temporary or last for years. Working closely with the team at Basin Dentistry can help you regain the use of your jaw and relief from painful TMJ side effects with general dentistry.
