You don't have to live in pain

IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING PAIN FROM TMJ DISORDER, WE CAN HELP.

If you have had pain, earaches, headaches or a grating and/or clicking sound, you may have what is known as TMJ Disorder, which indicates problems related to the jaw joint. Issues arising from the jaw joint or jaw muscles are caused by anything from overuse to arthritis to a jaw injury. It is rare for one treatment to resolve a TMJ disorder completely, but COAFS offers a myriad of treatment options. Contact our office to schedule an appointment with our TMJ Disorder specialist, Dr. Katrina Myers.
