For patients dealing with a TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder, symptoms like a stiff and painful jaw, persistent headaches, and even neck or shoulder pain are everyday obstacles. About 75 million people suffer from these issues every year, and most have no clue it is because of their jaw joint being out of balance. If you have pain in your jaw, head, or neck and cannot figure out why, your jaw is likely the culprit. Dr. Kenneth O. Gasper II treats complications with TMJ therapy in Colorado Springs to give you the relief you need.

Why Choose Aesthetic Dentistry by Design for TMJ Therapy?

Your temporomandibular joint is located on either side of your face near your ears. The hinge-like joint connects your jaw to your skull.

Some clear signs you might be dealing with a misaligned or strained joint can include:

What Causes TMJ Dysfunction?

It is estimated as much as 12% of the population will suffer from chronic jaw pain at some point. In some cases, it is the result of a past injury or arthritis; however, most often it is from a simpler issue, like an uneven bite.

Dr. Gasper is specially trained and certified to identify where the tension originates to adjust the position of the jaw to alleviate the pressure and stress. Dr. Gasper creates the customized treatment plan you need to stop your jaw pain in Colorado Springs.
