TMJ Specialist Houston

Some dental problems occur alone, while others occur as a set with many concerns. Such disorders are Temporomandibular joint (TMJ). These are a family of several problems connected to the jaw joint. If you feel pain or hear clicking sound, you should make yourself ready for the treatment. The temporomandibular joint connects your jaw to the skull, and when the jaw joints do not work with the chewing muscles, disorders develop. Early detection of TMJ is essential as this disorder can lead to serious problems. If you live in Houston and are finding a TMJ specialist, then visit Vintage Oral Surgery, where Dr. Millwala will help you treat the problem.
