CLICKING AND POPPING IN THE JAW

Does your jaw click or pop when you open and shut your mouth? If so, you may be experiencing one of the primary symptoms of TMJ, a common disorder caused by the misalignment of the jaw. If you find that your jaw is making noises when you eat or speak, please call Beaverton neuromuscular dentist Dr. Michael Negru to schedule a comprehensive evaluation today.

Diagnosing TMJ

Dr. Negru utilizes both time-tested hands-on evaluation and advanced technology such as the K7 Evaluation System to diagnose TMJ. These methods are capable of detecting even the slightest misalignment and provide useful information about which TMJ treatment options will best serve your needs. Dr. Negru offers a range of nonsurgical treatments, including customized orthotics, which can help restore alignment and provide lasting comfort from this disorder.

TMJ symptoms are not always limited to the jaw and may include:
