TMJ Therapy in Silver Spring, MD

TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint. This joint is what attaches your lower jaw to the side of your head, and is responsible for your ability to open and close your mouth. When something affects the TMJ, it can greatly hinder oral functioning. If you have a problem with your TMJ, the only way to restore complete and full function is with TMJ therapy.

In Silver Spring, MD, Fenton Family Dental provides TMJ therapy. Our TMJ therapy is not only effective, but is also affordable!
