A fact some people don’t realize is that the jaw (including bones, muscles and cartilage) is part of the oral environment. For that reason, problems that occur within the mouth can have a strong impact on the joint of the jaw. This means that, for example, if you have a high spot on a filling, or if you removed too many teeth from one side, pressure can be created in the jaw joint. If not treated promptly, it could lead to irreversible damage of the joint. That damage can require surgery. If that’s your situation, you will definitely benefit from our experts in jaw surgery Cleveland, TN patients trust.
