It’s already March! That means spring sports are just around the corner! For us at Ekim orthodontics that means it is mouth guard season. When your child participates in an athletic activity without wearing a mouth guard the risk of injury is 60 percent greater than if wearing a properly fitting mouth guard.

Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders, commonly called “TMJ”, describe pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and muscles that control jaw movement. For some people, pain in the jaw joint area or jaw muscles is not a serious problem. Generally, discomfort from these conditions is occasional, temporary, and occurring in cycles. The pain eventually goes away with little or no treatment.
