Your TMJ is the joint that connects your lower jaw to the upper skull. Many times, this joint can wear down and become painful or make clicking or popping sounds. In some cases, your jaw can actually lock open or closed, or cause muscle spasms and soreness. TMJ can also cause severe headaches and myo-facial pain. At Prehn Dental Offices, Dr. Frederick Prehn is trained and qualified to provide you with treatment for the TMJ in Wausau, Wisconsin. Treatment options vary, and our dentist will work with you to determine what is best for your present condition.
