Patients who suffer from TMJ disorders causing TMJ and facial Pain can often have challenges finding the right dentist in Victoria, Texas to treat them if they have a severe case. There are not many dental clinics here who treat very severe cases, and understandably so as they are not straightforward to treat. Often I see patients who started at their primary care physician, then are referred to an ENT specialist, sometimes even to a neurologist before they finally somehow find their way to my Victoria, TX dental office.
Numerous factors can cause TMJ problems, with the most common being grinding and clenching of the teeth. This can be seen with or without bite problems that can further the TMJ pain.
