what is tmd?

Importance Of Treating TMD

At NYC Smile Spa, we want our patients to live their best lives free of discomfort. Unfortunately, patients who suffer from temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMD, often live with various degrees of discomfort and pain daily. It can be debilitating and will worsen over time if left untreated. If you are unfamiliar, TMD occurs when there is a neuromuscular imbalance in your jaw and facial muscles that leads to discomfort in various areas of the head and neck.
